Lost Property, commissioned by The British Library and inspired by Paddington’s arrival to London, invites children to experience the Lost Property Library with master storyteller Richard O’Neill, and imagine what would happen if Paddington came to Leeds.
Stargazer is an online theatrical adventure for the whole family.

Peter Pan Flies Again, commissioned by Bradford Literature Festival, is a magical musical pop-up adventure, perfect for the whole family. The performance features a host of reimagined musical favourites, and is accompanied by an interactive activity session led by the cast.
