Hugless Douglas show is one you can’t bear to miss

Have your say

Hugless Douglas is a huggable, lovable young brown bear who wakes up one morning in need of a hug.

He tries to find the perfect one, but none of them seem quite right. After all – there are so many different hugs to choose from.

But Douglas soon discovers that there’s only one hug that will do – a big bear hug from his mum!

Packed full of family fun and happy hugging, Blunderbus Theatre Company will be showcasing their brand-new show, Hugless Douglas, at Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre on Friday, October 31, with performances at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

Little cubs aged three to seven will love this heartwarming tale, but grown-up bears will have lots of fun too.

So join Douglas in his happy new show, full of laughter, sing-along songs and plenty of chances for audience participation too.

To tie in with the show, Leighton Buzzard Library will be running some Hugless Douglas-themed storytimes.

There’s one today (Tuesday) from 2.45pm to 3.15pm, and if that doesn’t suit then how about Wednesday from 9.45am to 10.15am?

Why not bring your favourite teddy bear along to the Lake Street venue for some special hugs?
