'The perfect way to launch a theatre-going habit' The Guardian
'A lovely, intimate performance that kept the babies captivated' Parent

Baby Show is our ever-popular sensory performance with captivating images and intriguing sounds that keep little ones rapt. Having played to over 4,000 babies, and now in its third year, this expertly created production is a perfect first theatre experience. 

During the show, you and your baby are sat in our gorgeous garden-set and watch as the performer playfully explores the joys and tribulations of getting ready and exploring outside. At the end of the show there is a chance to play together in the space.

'When was the last time you enjoyed a piece of theatre so much you regularly burst into spontaneous applause, laughed so hard you stole the show an made repeated attempts to rush the stage?' The Guardian 


'Beautiful, creative, gorgeous atmosphere and perfect for little ones' Parent, 2018

‘It was very well-designed for babies, and just the right length’ Parent, 2017

‘My daughter found it hysterical and was giggling throughout. We have not heard her giggle like that before’ Parent, 2018

'Perfectly pitched. Loved seeing the babies laugh in reaction to what was going on onstage' Parent, 2017

'I appreciated the meet and greet by the friendly staff, showed to a chill-out room on the 2nd floor which was perfect for my baby to crawl about in and me to relax. The 20 minutes before the show hanging out with my baby and other parents was part of the experience for me (especially after a long train journey) which I wasn't expecting.' Parent 2018

'It was visually beautiful and the entire immersive experience was very unique and special.' Parent, 2018

'The baby changing table outside the performance studio was also well thought out.' Parent, 2017
