The sun goes down and the sky goes dark; it is time for bed, it is time for an adventure. Remembering a dream he once had as a child, a man takes a journey across the cosmos and discovers a truth long forgotten. Alien worlds, giant robots and the snazziest pair of pyjamas ever, collide in an audio-visual treat, as interactive images and animations lead to a trip beyond the stars. Drink your cocoa; brush your teeth, snuggle up somewhere warm and get ready to hear a story. A bedtime story for the universe.
Now in it's second year, this delightfully spaced out show has captured the hearts of adults and children alike.
Actors and musicians skilled in storytelling, improvisation and general silliness just need you and your ideas to make a play. There'll be wonderful stories, daft jokes, infectious songs and plenty of opportunities for you to join in the fun. With you in charge, no two shows can ever be the same!
Follow Mouse into the deep dark wood on a hunt for hazelnuts. Armed with just a nut map and a very vivid imagination, Mouse runs into the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force officer Owl; and the maraca-shaking, part animal Snake. Rather than becoming the main course of their next meal, Mouse scares them away with stories of an imaginary monster friend, but what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined? For 3-6 year olds.
Running time: 55mins

Jeremy really, really loves Christmas. All he wants is for each Christmas to be perfect; mince pies, stockings, mistletoe and especially, (and this is the icing on the Christmas cake)... lots and lots of SNOW! But, who exactly brings the snow? Santa? Rudolph? Jack Frost? No, it's the one job left in the heavy hands of the Trolls of Winter. However, the trolls are fed up with never getting any of the credit. It's always those cheery, little elves and that red nosed reindeer celebrated at Christmas, while the hard working trolls miss out. Not once have they been on an advent calendar or featured in a carol, so this year, unless they get their ugly mugs on at least one Christmas card, there will be NO SNOW!
