How The Sun Was Rescued

  • 7 June

Event Information

10am & 11.15am

Running Time: 40 minutes

Welcome to our place. A place where we tell stories, explore, and imagine together. Journey underground through a cardboard forest; jump and splash in a dragon’s rainstorm; sit tight in the light of the stolen sun; climb a ladder to the sky and visit feather woman.

We invite you to use all of your senses and to step into the world of each of our stories. Listen, laugh, explore and play with us!

This weeks tale is: How The Sun Was Rescued

The sun has disappeared and Hare is off on an adventure to find it; will you come along?
