A New Coat for Christmas, 7th December to 7th January, 13:30 and 19:30
Snowflakes are falling and Anna needs a coat to keep her warm and snug. But times are hard, so Anna and Mummy set out to make a new coat – with a little help from their friends. A New Coat for Christmas is inspired by a true tale of finding friendship in unexpected places. This enchanting story is full of music, fun and a flock of very fluffy sheep. It is the perfect festive treat, all wrapped up and ready to charm little ones and their grown-ups.
Hush-A-Bye, 13th to 14th January, 10:30 and 13:30
Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a woodland wonderland with Hush-A-Bye. An interactive show for the very young, with live music and enchanting puppets. Nestle among branches in Oily Cart’s immersive tree-top world. The leafy canopy is home to some of the creatures you might expect, and one you definitely won’t – a tiny baby! How did the infant get up there? Who is looking after them? And how can we help? Age guideline: 3 to 5.
