We had a great time working with Upswing on this magical production celebrating that special time of the day where stresses and strains of life melt away and you enter a world of imagination and dreams.

Rediscover that special time before sleep where bedtime stories are told and our unconscious mind takes hold, transporting everyone away on an adventure.

Tucked up with your family and friends, take this chance to unwind and be dazzled with circus, theatre, dance and projections from innovative circus company Upswing. Suitable for the whole family, Bedtime Stories encourages us to take time out from our busy lives and explore the importance of the connection between carers and children, work-life balance and managing priorities within the family.
