It’s Raining Cat and Dog Stories

Grethe Mangala Jensen, otherwise known as Sandal Sticks Theatre, is very excited to be back at the Horniman with a selection of fun and interactive Cat and Dog stories for the whole family.

Join Sandal Sticks Theatre in two interactive retellings of:

  • the Brothers Grim, Cat and Mouse in Partnership
  • H.C. Andersen’s Tinderbox

Two traditional fairy tales featuring our beloved furry friends!

Cat and Mouse in Partnership tells the story of a cat and mouse who are best friends on a quest to hide a pot of fat in a safe place for Winter.

H.C. Andersen’s Tinderbox is a tale about a soldier who meets a witch, a princess and three gigantic magical dogs. Be prepared to join in, sing, have fun and practice your meows and Bow-wows!
