More information from organisers:

Create imaginary worlds in the Olivier-Award nominated experience To the Moon and Back, for ages 3 months to 4 years.

With a knock, audience members will share a multi-sensory journey into interactive spaces of senses and special effects. You’ll encounter props and scenes that conjure the natural world, made with unusual and tactile materials, from feather rain to velvet stars. And you’ll also be shown ideas on how everyday objects can be turned into tools for creativity and fun at home. 

Artistic Director and founder of M-SET Paula Manning invents delightful installations combining visual arts as well as design that stimulates the senses. In this participatory, promenade experience young children and also parents/carers are encouraged to interact and explore the installation. Everyone requires a ticket, including babies.
