A Tiger’s Tale is a high spirited balancing act of circus, puppetry, music and song.
From a circus train in South Africa, to a steamboat on the Atlantic Ocean and onward to West Yorkshire, a ramshackle travelling troupe tell us the unbelievable true story of acrobats and their adopted tiger cub!
Join Titch, Ma & Pa on their riotous adventure into a world where ‘all the best stories end with a surprise.
Simply click below to view. The film and home resource pack will be available to download, free of charge, from Friday 8 to Sunday 24 May.
A Tiger’s Tale was inspired by the book Tiger on a String by Kassie Overend. It tells the true story of a family of acrobats who travelled the world with their circus act. When WW2 broke out, they returned home, back to their small Yorkshire village, with an additional family member, Fenella, a Sumatran tiger!
Holmfirth remembers her still and we think everybody should hear her extraordinary tale!
