Stick Man is leaving his family tree and heading to Southampton next week.

Based on the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, Stick Man comes to MAST Mayflower Studios from Tuesday (November 28) to Saturday December 2.

What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for Stick Man: a dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him, and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree in time for Christmas?
