Classic children’s character Elmer the Patchwork Elephant brings colour to town

The classic children’s character Elmer the Elephant has packed his trunk and is heading to Warrington later this month.

Based on the book series by David McKee, which celebrates its 30th birthday in 2019, the Elmer the Patchwork Elephant show is a celebration of individuality and the power of laughter.

Elephants are big, have trunks, and are grey; but Elmer is different, Elmer is a patchwork of brilliant colours.

His fun-loving and cheerful personality keeps everyone in a playful mood, until the day he gets tired of being different and tries to blend in with the herd.

But he ultimately learns that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.

The Elmer the Patchwork Elephant show, which features a menagerie of 21 loveable puppets, sends out the message that it is always best to be yourself.

Combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, this makes Elmer a great show for children of all ages.
