But not all acorns are good. Some are downright second rate.

And Squirrel is fussy like that.

Under the light of the sun, between the houses and the offices, and the rivers and the factories, Squirrel has buried their favourite acorn collection.

It’s easy to remember where; it’s under the third tree from the left.

Or was it the right? Oh hang on a minute…

This is a story of new growth and new beginnings with a sprinkling of magic and puppetry to charm audiences of every age! Recommended for children aged 6 months to 4 years who are actively encouraged to take part in the show.

★★★★This small wonder is full of surprises... an irresistible treat for under-fives - The Guardian

Relaxed performances are devised to make theatre more accessible to people disabled by the usual rules of theatre etiquette. Relaxed Performances are open to everyone and remove nothing from the production. They benefit a huge range of audiences including those with autism, movement disorders, dementia, learning disabilities or just being a child!

Ours take on the following characteristics:

  • A free, Visual Story to help you prepare for the visit, which will be available from 1 week before the first performance on the performance page. This will give you clear, understandable advanced information
  • A relaxed approach to movement and noise coming from the audience; our Front of House team won’t ‘shush’ you or ask you to be quiet.
  • A chill out space at balcony level which can be accessed throughout the performance.
  • Ear defenders on request.
