Fun Days to see “The Gruffalo” at the Lyric Theatre!

In collaboration with our partners at Kenny Wax Productions, KidsOut enabled 111 children to attend a Fun Day out to The Gruffalo at the Lyric Theatre, London, in July. For many of the children, this was their first time visiting a theatre!

Those who attended the show had an amazing time and provided some lovely feedback. One child enjoyed the experience so much they couldn’t wait to tell us that it was “one of the best days of my life!” A mother stressed how important a day out like this was to her family, saying how “It’s so nice to be doing normal things again”. Another family told us the trip held a special significance because “We read the Gruffalo all the time, so it was great to see it come alive!”


KidsOut Fun Days are developed in consultation with our service users, always being customised to the interests of the children we support. In particular, they benefit the blossoming of four key areas essential to success later in life: social skills, confidence, motivation, and resilience. Children are empowered to develop the coping mechanisms needed for good mental health.

KidsOut would like to thank Kenny Wax Productions for their continued support. The partnership is clearly making a real difference to the lives of the children attending the shows and we hope it can continue for many years to come.
