The Three Little Pigs

After a sell-out tour to schools, finally a chance for the general public to come and enjoy our original interpretation of Three Little Pigs! We will be performing at the Manchester Children’s Book Festival MCBF this June and at Chester Zoo’s Wildlife Connections Festival in September.

Last year we created a Labyrintheme performance for

families at MCBF as part of Three Little Pigs project:

    An incredible journey in your mind! FANTASTIC

    So much fun. Loved it.


    Original and fabulous and kind of moving!

    Loved every second of it x

    Thank you for a magical and totally unforgettable

         adventure - we loved it!

Saddleworth Museum

Alongside Saddleworth Museum, Matt Wardle and I are creating a performance with pupils from St Thomas Primary School in Oldham in response to reminiscence of the Saddleworth community who used to work in Oldham mills.  The pupils interviewed the older volunteers from Age UK Oldham and are now busy rehearsing and making puppets ready for their performance at Saddleworth

Museum this May.  The performance will

also include live music and movement.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Peterloo - a new script for the People’s History Museum

I have been busy researching, writing and directing a new script for the People’s History Museum based on events at St Peter’s Field in Manchester 1819.

Children enjoyed it and were inspired

Well planned and informative

Thanks to funding from Heritage Schools, the museum is able

to offer a limited number of performances free of charge
