Higgledy Piggledy Pie

Presented by Noisy Oyster.

When the king asks for a higgledy piggledy pie for his supper the royal chefs are thrown into a spin - especially when they find the cupboard is bare! The chefs are helped by their vegetapals to collect the special nursery rhyme ingredients.

WHY? Featuring puppets made from vegetables, a hula hooping butternut squash, original music, clowning and a rather large pie!

Suitable for ages 3+ years.

Jump In! Exhibition – Bee Me

An exhibition created with local schools and inspired by Me and My Bee, a show in the Jump In! Family Arts Festival.

Albert Einstein said that without the bees, humans have four years left to live. We rely on bees to pollinate one third of the crops we use as food.

This special multi-sensory experience for diverse family audiences including children with SEN, explores the importance and plight of bees, and gives ideas for what we can do to help the bee population.
