Take Flight

7 May @ 1:00 pm - 8 May @ 11:00 am BST

£12 – £20

TAKE FLIGHT is an original early years aerial theatre show for 0-2 year olds and their grown ups. The story follows a mother and baby bird as their baby grows and explores, navigating making friends, overcoming challenges and eventually supporting them to leave the nest and take flight.

This multi-sensory, interactive show ignites the imagination and curiosity of the babies who are then invited into the space with the performers. During the stay and play session the babies can touch, play and explore the set and props, including having a swing in the silks.

The Gramophones worked closely with development psychologist Dr Valentina Sclafani from Lincoln University to ensure the content is positive for babies in terms of neurological and motor skills development, and encouraging a strong connection and bond between babies and their grown ups.

Age guidance: 0 – 2 years
Running times: 35 minute performances followed by 15 minute stay and play session
