When a real Fairy Tale arrives in London…


Do you think Fairy Tales are only book stories ? Are you one of those who believe that Fairy Tales can be seen only in movies or in theatre plays ?  Do you really believe those characters are unreachable and very distant from you ? Well… you might have to rethink all that. Benjamin Pollock’s Toyshop is ready to prove you can not only meet mystical creatures, but you can actually take them home… if you are fast enough to catch them.

This story started a long time ago, in a very distant and unknown land, where one of our travellers was lost in a long and winding road. Owls watched everything very attentively and moths were flying around, as if they were trying to indicate the right direction. It was the middle of the night and the road was illuminated by moon people spread all over that beautiful and strange sky.

It all happened when a Travelling Theatre passed by and stopped to talk to our fellow gentleman. The driver was a fantastical bear who offered a ride to our travelling man. He met Sirens, Selkies, Witches, Wolves, Ghosts, a turquoise cat and a very particular Poet. Between illusion and reality, a lot was exchange between those amazing creatures and our traveller. A beautiful friendship flourished and now it is their turn to visit us. They arrived in London and Benjamin Pollock’s Toyshop has the honour of welcoming them and offering them a place to stay.  We invite you to be part of this story and to meet this unique crowd.
