Taking Flight

  • 5 - 7 October

Event Information

Friday: 10am
Saturday: 11.30am& 3pm

Running Time: 40 Minutes

Taking Flight chronicles the adventures of a young person who goes on an adventurous international journey away from home. Armed with only a backpack of favourite items, the child’s most treasured possessions help in some surprising and creative ways, to overcome many barriers along the way.

The story intriguingly and inventively is told via the use of minimal storytelling, a pen, a pad of paper and a global soundtrack, mapping the journey, evoking different landscapes and endowing its audience with a profound sense of what it is to be human and to have a place to call ‘home.’

Adults: £9
Children: £8
Schools: £6.50 (Weekdays only)

A booking fee of 50p per ticket applies
