Shows for Children at Chickenshed

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

CHICKENSHED has two shows for children aged 0-6 years in the coming months.

Tales from the Shed are vibrant, interactive theatre shows that are perfect for young children. They are informal, lively and amazingly engaging as the performers and audience share the same space.

Children are always encouraged to make lots of noise and create a lively and exciting show. Every week, Chickenshed introduces different stories featuring the same much loved characters – from Can-Can the beautiful bird to laid back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh!

Tales from the Shed runs every Friday from January 18 to March 8 at 11.30am; every Saturday from January 19 to March 9 at 10am and 11.30am. Plus half term dates: Wednesday, February 20, Thursday, February 21 and Fridy, February 22 at 10am and 11.30am.

Tickets: £6, free to babies under 6 months.

Suitable for ages 0-6 years.
