A creative participatory experience for children aged 3 – 5 years.

Set within a horse’s stable, Horseplay is a magical, multi-sensory world containing live performer, Niki McCretton, beautiful props, miniature landscapes, lighting, sound and images to support children’s imaginative ideas.

Initiated by Niki’s pony-tale, the children take over as their play becomes the performance. Parents and teachers watch the unfolding story through nooks and crannies in the stable wall. Horseplay is guaranteed to thrill children and will please arty parents too!

Horseplay lasts for about 40 minutes with a chance for children and parents to ask questions and play together afterwards.
