Babes in Arms 

We strive to be as inclusive as possible and have a passion for inspiring children in the arts from a very early age. Reflecting this throughout our programme, we welcome babes in arms for the majority of our shows. We realise that deciding which shows are suitable for babies is subjective and so we leave it up to the parents or carers discretion, however if you are wondering about the content of any of our performances, please do reach out to us via social media or our Box Office team.

For most of our shows, we don’t expect our audience members to pay to bring their young baby along. We do however programme a selection of shows per year which are specifically aimed at engaging babies and their parent/carer, and a ticket for them is required. This will be clear at the time of booking.
