‘Some acorns DO fall far from the tree’

Gather under the branches for the biggest day in the woodland calendar, Drop Day! Arnold the acorn is about to drop from his tree and begin his amazing adventure in search of somewhere to put down his roots.

Taking place at the Fusilier Museum in Bury, Arnold’s Big Adventure features beautiful shadow puppetry, wonderful original music to sing along to and plenty of thrilling surprises along the way…

An intimate, interactive production perfect for a child’s first theatre experience and with plenty for parents to enjoy too. Devised, performed and produced by children’s theatre specialist Tessa Bide.

Suitable for children aged 3 – 10 years and their grown-ups.

‘From the moment the show started, I could see my daughter was transfixed…just brilliant, so creative and engaging with the children (and the adults)…it was pitched just right. The actors did a brilliant job of making sure that every child was involved in some way.’ ????? Whatsgoodtodo.com
