Tales from the Shed - Summer Season

Tales from the Shed Performance

Every carefully planned show incorporates educational songs, movement and language games, which help promote brain development and early learning in young children.

Every show is different, with a new theme incorporated into the show each week. Having worked in partnership with early years experts over three decades, our diverse team presents educational stories featuring our much-loved characters - from Can-Can the beautiful Bird to laid-back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh!
