Silly Squirrel

12pm | 1pm | 2pm

Deep in the woods on the big oak tree, lives a little squirrel with big ideas. This is Silly Squirrel. Silly Squirrel has never left the tree but longs to explore! So, before the other squirrels are awake, Silly Squirrel conducts a plan, to go on their biggest adventure yet!

I wonder who they will meet and what they will find out along the way?

With puppets, gentle interaction and lots of laughs! This is the perfect introduction to theatre for ages 0-7.

The Empress & the Nightingale – Popera House

12:30pm | 1:30pm

The Empress and The Nightingale is The Bluebirds own re-telling of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale of the magic of song. It’s a story-telling show specially for children and families and brings to life the wonderful characters in the magical space of The Popera House.

Meet the Empress and China, the brown nightingale and the magnificent clockwork nightingale, and most important of all, meet Lu Xi the clever little kitchen maid who navigates you skilfully through the story.

As with all Bluebird show, The Empress and the Nightingale has a feast of music, handmade bespoke puppets and interactive musical elements.
