Wilding Theatre is an extraordinary outdoor theatre adventure for children aged 4+ and their families.
The Planet is out of balance; Dreaming Earth Giants are stirring from their deep, time-long sleep. Called by a Curlew, Alice finds herself on a fantastical journey that takes her from treetop to deep underground. She learns to speak Woodpecker and sings with a worm, she tumbles upon a mole and is dwarfed by giant wild flowers all in search of an elusive invitation to meet some very important mushrooms…
Wilding Theatre takes us all on an ecological odyssey of surprises – through puppets, song, clown, storytelling and listening to the natural world – young people and their families alike will become part of the spiralling connections that Alice makes so that together we come to understand how to send the giants back to sleep. 
Age guidance: 4+

Service Updates: There will be no Gill's Exercise Class on the 20th and 27th Feb, 13th and 27th Mar, 3rd and 24th Apr, and 22nd May, check the What's On page for more information.
