'clever design and energetic performances combine to create a delightful show for audiences with PMLD’ –★★★★ The Stage
A multi-sensory spectacular for audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD).
The glasses are polished, the lights are low, and time will be hopping. The Bar at the Edge of Time waits only for you, so what are you waiting for?
Step across the threshold and meet the bar's maestro mixologists, crooners, and hosts. But a mystery lies at the heart of this place, one that can only be solved when we spend our time together.
During the show you can choose a drink. You can choose a cocktail or a mocktail. A mocktail is a drink with no alcohol.
