The Whale’s Tale

The Whale’s Tale


Immerse yourself in The Whale’s Tale as you watch from the shore, or submerge yourself in this underwater playground full of surprises. Ever wonder what it’s like to be swallowed whole? It’s time to put on your shrimp helmet, take a deep breath, and dive inside the massive jaws of Manilayo, the humpback whale.

Become a hero and live to tell the tale! A Whale is washed up on a beach and discovered by a child. Is it alive or dead? How did it get there? The spirit of the Whale embodied as the Navigator, embarks on a journey to find out what is wrong with the dubious help of Dr Walrus. Highly interactive, full of riotous slapstick and extremely playful.

An environmental tale to warm the heart, with reflections about the consequences of our actions. It has been forecast that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. The Whale’s Tale is a rollicking journey that will leave you and your children wanting to make a difference.

This is a free event for which you do not need a ticket. You can register your interest to receive updates about the event and important information for your attendance.
