Previous Work


We started in 2014 at Hammersmith & Fulham ArtsFest with a production of ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’, which we performed at Fulham Library. We acquired sponsorship from Specsavers, which funded this event, and it was free for the community. This event was featured in the Specsavers newsletter. Since then, we’ve worked with various theatres, libraries, festivals and other organisations performing interactive shows and workshops for children aged 0-11, all based on children’s literature. We currently do bi-weekly workshops at the Bright Emporium in Clapham based on their children’s books for children aged 2-5. Below is a list of companies we’ve worked with in the last 6 years.
