Win 4 tickets to Elmer The Patchwork Elephant at The Lowry

Based on the classic children’s book series by David McKee, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant is coming to The Lowry on 19th-21st February this year. Elmer is a vibrant, funny celebration of individuality.

Elephants, as everyone knows are big, have trunks and flappy ears, and they are very grey. But Elmer is different, he is a glorious patchwork of brilliant colours. Elmer gets fed up of being so different, so he tries his very hardest to blend in, fairly unsuccessfully, large patchwork elephants are pretty hard to hide. Thankfully Elmer realises that his friends have always valued his unique personality and appearance.

A favourite since the book was first published in 1989, this classic tale has been adapted for the stage by Suzanne Maynard Miller, with songs by Allison Leyton-Brown. The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself, combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the elephant, makes Elmer a great show for children of all ages.
