This autumn Chickenshed presents weekly theatre shows for young children...

Tales from the Shed

These are informal, lively and engaging as the performers and audience share the same space - children are always encouraged to make a lot of noise and to make the story happen.

We guarantee that every show will be fun, really silly and that there will be plenty of colourful puppets and live songs. Every week we present different stories featuring the same much loved characters - from Can-Can the beautiful bird to laid back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh!

Every Friday at 11.30am and Saturdays at 10am and 11.30am from September 7 to October 27. Additional half term dates include October 23 to 26 10am and 11.30am. For ages up to six years.

Planet Play

Chickenshed’s new magical world of sensory learning, wonder and exploration, for babies and toddlers. These 45 minute sessions will encourage young children to develop and explore the world around them through song, music, movement and a truly sensory experience.

Devised by Chickenshed’s creative Tales from the Shed team, Planet Play has been specifically developed to encourage play and early communication development in young children. Using songs and rhymes with young children is a fun, engaging way to widen vocabularies and increase listening skills, all of which are brilliant building blocks as children are learning to read, write and communicate.

Every Friday from September 7 until October 19 at 10am. For those aged up to three years.

Chickenshed, Chase Side, Southgate, N14 4PE.
