Schedule from organisers:
MEET ME A TREE (0-2YRS)
Meet me a Tree is an interactive first opera for 0-2 year-olds and their carers with music by Schumann, Delibes and Handel as well as words and music created by the company. Hurly Burly invites you and your baby on a multisensory journey through a year in the life of a tree: singing with blackbirds, marching through fallen leaves, smelling new blossom and feeling the wind on your cheeks.
AIR GIANTS – LUMA
Luma is an 8m long, inflatable and robotic long snail who loves an audience. The movement is inspired by the flexible and contorting motion found within the animal kingdom. Her presence as she looms above visitors is gentle, welcoming and otherworldly.
Luma is a joyful and hopeful work which champions both nature and technology, and reimagines what robots can be for.

The hit improvised play for families is back – and you’re in charge! Watch as your wild and wonderful ideas are brought to life by a troupe of storytellers in an hour of never-before-seen fairy tales and other nonsense. For everyone aged 3+.
