Hush-A-Bye

Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree-top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock…

Nestle among branches and meet the neighbours in Oily Cart’s immersive tree-top world. The leafy canopy is home to some of the creatures you might expect, and one you definitely won’t – a tiny baby! How did the infant get up there? Who is looking after them? And how can we help? Experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of a woodland wonderland, the audience must explore to find answers.

Hush-A-Bye is an interactive, multi-sensory production for the very young, with live music, puppets and an enchanting environment. Created by Oily Cart, a theatre company renowned for their innovation, the production is presented in three versions: one for babies and toddlers (6 months – 2 years), one for young children (3 – 5 years), and a relaxed version for young people aged 3 - 8.

About previous early years show IN A PICKLE:

Another lovely show from the loveliest of companies, one that has remained at the forefront of British theatre for over three decades.
The Guardian ****

The most beautifully produced children's performance I have ever seen: professional, engaging, imaginative.
