Have your say

Ferneham Hall is a long way from the Australian outback, but there will be koalas at the venue on Sunday at 2.30pm.

How The Koala Learnt To Hug is a charming tale about the magic of family and, of course, the importance of a nice warm hug.

With heartwarming outback characters and a clever mixture of live action puppetry and animatronics, the show is wholesome charming entertainment for the whole family.

It is based on the title story from How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales by Steven Lee.

Join Steven and a host of wild characters including Natascha the Witch, The Reggae Beavers and Karen the Koala for some stories, songs, games and first-class hugging.
