Look down. What are you standing on? Grass! In December?

Explore the ground and all of its wriggling inhabitants in this quirky dance show for young children and families.

Performed on freshly-cut turf, Grass is a gently interactive show around an intimate set featuring worms, slugs, snails and spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing. Animated butterflies flutter across the stage and humans pit against worms in this sensory exploration of the world beneath our feet.

With a special session after the show to stay and play, Grass will inspire children to look closely at the world around them, get moving, get mucky and play!
