About The Show

The night of the Snow Dragon approaches… 

Billy has everything a young goat could need – and more besides. On New Year’s Eve, Billy is looking forward to the annual visit of the legendary Snow Dragon, who will bring him even more goodies... 

But when Billy bumps into some hungry wolves in the forest, New Year’s Day seems a long way off. How will Billy escape? And has he been naughty or nice? 

Toe-tapping songs and lots of laughs for everyone aged 3 and up, from the company that brought you The Gruffalo.
