The Lion Inside @ Royal Arsenal Woolwich

Sat 31st July 2021 - Sat 31st July 2021

31st July @ Royal Arsenal Woolwich

This production is based on the award-winning book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field

In a dry dusty place where. The sand sparkled gold. Stood a mighty flat rock – All craggy and old. And under that rock In a tiny house, Lived the littlest, quietest, Meekest brown mouse.

Fed up with being ignored, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes… and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Running time: 30 minutes

Age guidance: For everyone aged 3+

LAS is a word in the Irish language. It means to ignite, turn on or set alight. We create layered, urgent, heart-driven stories that engage people of all ages. These tales tackle important and complex ideas in surprising, joyous and participatory ways.

About the venue:

Dial Arch Square is located on the Royal Arsenal in the heart of Woolwich, with a number of transport links provided by TFL bus, train and DLR services, as well as parking sites in the local area.  

Access to the performance site is flat-level and pedestrianised; when enjoying the performance you can stand, bring your own chair, or you can sit down on the grass.  

On the day, as part of the Greenwich Family Arts Festival, there will also be a drop-in circus workshop with AirCraft Circus Academy between 11.30am and 2.45pm - you do not need to book for the workshop which will also take place on Dial Arch Square. 

The Royal Arsenal Riverside Farmers Market will take place as usual on Artillery Square nearby, and there are a number of shops available to suit your needs in the surrounding area.  

The nearest public loos for your convenience are located on Beresford Square, or in the Dial Arch and Guardhouse pubs; should you require an accessible toilet, the nearest available is in the Concierge Office on Artillery Square – just ask a member of staff! 

To reserve your space please book a free ticket.

This event is part of Greenwich Family Arts Festival, a month-long programme of free arts activities, theatre, workshops and more taking place all across the borough of Greenwich. Events are grouped across a weekend in different locations so you can attend multiple events each day and really get those festival vibes (we all know it's been a long time!)
