024 7652 4524

There’s a problem with shoes. They keep getting mixed up. That man has a welly on one foot and a fluffy slipper on the other. The woman over there is wearing a flip flop and a football boot. Some people don’t have any shoes at all! What’s going on? Has that woman who lives in a shoe got anything to do with this?
Help us find out in Oily Cart’s beautiful new show for children from 3 to 5, their families and friends. Join us on a journey through the sights, scents, textures and sounds of this multi-sensory wonderland in the company of a live musician, plenty of puppets and all sorts of shoes.


The Muddy Choir

024 7652 4524

It’s November 1917 and the Third Battle of Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Robbie and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home. When the trio’s singing causes a disturbance up the line they face unwelcome attention from their commanding officers. Is music their ticket away from the front, as Robbie dreams, or will the passion it brings about prove more dangerous than bullets and gas?


Whatever the Weather

Warwick Arts Centre

University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL

Sat 14 Feb

2pm & 4pm

£10.95 (£7.95)

024 7652 4524

M6 Theatre’s imaginative new production for the very young is set in the charming world of a traditional Alpine Weather House. This quaint ornament tells us what weather to expect today. When the little woman comes out it’s going to be sunny! When the little man comes out it’s going to rain! The two characters couldn’t be more different.

But what happens when the winds of change blow? Blow so hard that everything becomes topsy-turvy? What will our lovable pair learn in their new and unfamiliar conditions? It might rain, it might get a bit windy, but the show must go on whatever the weather!

Welcome to Flounder Rock Lighthouse, where three men live and work, battling the elements and the long lonely night watches, with only each other and the seagulls for company.

Wise Old Tom and uptight middleman Dick are trying to teach Young ‘Arry the ropes on his first tour of service. When the storm of the century threatens, will disaster strike? Will the lamp shine true? Will the biscuits run out? Watch on, dear audience

WinterWalker presents Three Keepers; a play without words for everyone aged 8 and over. A tale of life on a rock lighthouse, told through an inventive blend of physical theatre, dance and comedy, inspired by the silent film clowning of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.

After the Sunday show and the Monday morning show, stay with the actors and give them suggestions for a FREE 40 minute physical comedy improvisation session. You might even end up on stage!

On Mon 16 Feb 12.45pm, join Kitty Winter (co-director of WinterWalker) in the Helen Martin Studio for comedy character creation in a one hour family workshop where you’ll create a short scene for sharing and get some yummy cake to boost your energy before the show at 2.30pm.

A show full of fun & feathers for children 3 and up!

This lively show is full of fun, feathers, laughter and excitement and features original music and lots of audience participation!

The friendly bus driver leaves us with one simple instruction: “Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus!” However, the Pigeon is very clever and whines, bribes, pleads and even sings a song to get his own way… BUT WILL YOU LET HIM DRIVE???

This show has been thrilling children in the UK for over three years and has just returned from a successful tour of the USA and Canada. Author Mo Willems has won six Emmy Awards as a writer and animator for Sesame Street and is the creator of Cartoon Network’s hit shows Sheep in the Big City and Codename: Kids Next Door. He was recently awarded the Caldecott Honor for children’s literature.
