Event Details

Into the sky: Tots & their Grown Ups | 9.00-10.00am


Join us as we soar and fly together, in this creative and playful session for tots and their grown-ups.

Together with your little one, we will explore, move and dance through a multi-sensory land above the clouds, inspired by the themes of Skydiver. Louise McDowell and Alex Mettam will lead playful movement activities using a variety of props, music and obstacles to stimulate the senses.

This session is for families with babies and young children aged 0-5 (older siblings and non-crawlers are very welcome).

Aimed at ages 0-5
