Join dancers from Turned on its Head in a dazzling, interactive show for our youngest audience. In a long forgotten room, two people find friendship, joy and treasure. From ordinary brown boxes comes an extraordinary array of colour, sound and texture to delight and engage.

Watch and play with amazement as all that glitters, shines and sparkles unfolds before your very eyes.

With plenty of performances to choose from, Shiny makes sure that young children of all ages are catered for, whether it’s an intimate performance for small babies (Under 18 months), or a performance suitable for a wider age range (6 months – 5 years) – ideal for young families and friends.

Beyond this, performances at 4.30pm on Thu 19 and Fri 20 Dec have been developed to be autism-friendly. The interactive elements of these shows are especially designed to incorporate both autistic and non-autistic children.
