"Intelligent comedy and deliciously humorous verse kept the young audience enthralled, but not scared.

Witty & dark-humoured, a highly original show."

Edinburgh Fringe Review


"An excellent performance . . ."

Buxton Fringe Review

​Sticky Ends is a collection of original comic cautionary stories and songs for modern children aged 5+. Full of music and chances to join in, Sticky Ends is perfect for families to enjoy together. Children aged 5+ will get all the jokes, but there's nothing to alarm younger ones. Never again will your child play too many computer games, demand ice-cream daily or refuse to go to bed after watching Sticky Ends...maybe.


Each batch of tales lasts 40-45 minutes and you choose the stories you want to hear, plus the chance to help make a brand new bonus story every show inspired from your suggestions!


​​Sticky Ends is low-tech show that fits into any space, making it a perfect for community events, festivals & fairs as well as libraries and schools, where it can be combined with an engaging story-writing workshop suitable for KS1 or KS2 students.


Sticky Ends was first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2000, was revised for the Buxton Fringe in 2017 and has been touring since then.
