Ready Steady Lift Off! is an interactive theatre show for 3 - 8 year olds and their families combining live performance, music, storytelling and painting. It invites you to take part in our weird and whacky astronaut programme.

In this show children and their grown ups will be creating awesome rockets together, so we advise not wearing your best clothes.

 The youngest members of the family are not forgotten in our Family Festival, with this star lit show for babies age 6 – 18 months.

Join Little Star as she swings from shooting stars, slides down crescent moons and bounces on fluffy clouds. Using puppetry, music and captivating visuals to delight our young audience, an intimate, relaxed setting makes this the perfect first theatre experience.

Little Star features Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, taking us on a journey with the star herself. Little Star wants to explore space. Not content with the same spot in the sky, she wants to see, hear and touch everything!

The performance lasts 25 minutes followed by 20 minutes of playtime
