Poggle 5 - 8 Oct 2017

A warm-hearted sensory dance theatre piece with live music, clapping rhythms and comedy throughout in an imaginatively changing world which the children have the chance to explore.

Mischief maker, maker of fun
Tumble tumble, tickle my tum
Beasties beasties, buzzing bees
Poggle’s not scared of climbing trees
Splash splash, squelch in mud
Creeping crawling, chasing bugs.

Vince really wants to explore the forest but is too scared, until one day he meets a friendly creature called Poggle. Together they go on an adventure through the forest where they discover the magical musical tree.
