  • Great for ages:

When Space Rabbit's planet is destroyed by a meteorite, she escapes in the nick of time. A blast separates her from her family, sending her hurtling towards earth, where she lands outside a care home, frightened and alone. Inside is Rufus Longbottom, an old gentleman itching for one last adventure. Guided by her magical paws, the unlikely pair go on a journey which takes them to the ends of the earth in the search for a family and a place to call home.

Using song, music and a bit of magic, Rufus Longbottom and the Space Rabbit is a delightful and enchanting show for audiences young and old alike.

Inspired by the writings and creations of KS2 children from schools in east London, Derbyshire and Oxfordshire
