LAS Theatre present: The Lion Inside

In a dry dusty place where the sand sparkled gold, stood a mighty flat rock, all craggy and old. And under that rock in a tinyful house, lived the littlest, quietest, meekest brown mouse.

Fed up with being ignored, Mouse wishes he could roar like Lion. But, as he discovers, even the biggest, bossiest people are scared sometimes … and even the smallest creatures can have the heart of a lion!

Based on the award-winning book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field, LAStheatre present The Lion Inside for everyone aged 3+. A story about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out to find his roar.

Ticket Prices:


Yes, really!

We know that times have been tough for everyone recently, so we want to make our events accessible and affordable to the whole community.

For the majority of events at The Welfare, you can now choose to pay the price that works best for you.

Throughout lockdown, we have been trialling a new Pay What You Can pricing model for some of our online events, and now we’re extending it to our live events. This new pricing structure has been a long-term ambition of ours, and amidst the huge disruption caused by the global pandemic, we identified the opportunity to make this change. Our goal now is to reach and re-connect as many people as possible after such a challenging year.

So How Does It Work?

On the Booking page, you will find multiple prices to choose from – just select the one that suits your budget best, as easy as that! To help you with this decision, we have included a recommended price per ticket. This recommended price is what we’d traditionally charge for tickets for this show, and any amount paid over this will help us continue to offer the Pay What You Can model for as long as possible, whilst helping to support our activities with artists, young people and our local community. We know that price is a barrier for some, and this new model is another step along the road to make all of our activities accessible to everyone.
