Abi and her Grandad tell each other Anansi folktales. They play games as they work together in the garden among the beautiful flowers and tasty vegetables. As they plant memories, they share secrets and develop a bond that nothing can break. Grandad is as smart and mischievous as the wily Anansi legend. Can he find a way to tell his granddaughter about his plans to return to Jamaica, his beloved homeland?

With wonderful live music, Grandad Anansi is an uplifting theatre show about love, courage and letting go.

Grandad Anansi is touring the UK celebrating Black History Month.

The show lasts for around 40 minutes with no interval.
