A multisensory interactive performance experience for babies and toddlers and those who care for them. Two performers, George and Niamh use music and puppets to welcome the children to our world of nature, growth and environment. Playfully together we celebrate their birth in the context of the natural world’s benefits for health and wellbeing.
After the show links to recordings of the songs invite further extending of the experience into play at home or in school.
