Four Somerset arts venues were transformed into vibrant family get-togethers as children and their parents took part in an exciting collaboration with performance artists.
Under fives from Children’s Centres in Bridgwater, Frome, Ilminster and Taunton, worked with the four artists from Travelling Light Theatre in workshops to develop a group experience of music, painting and shadow play. The results inspired the play which then toured nationally. They inspired partner theatre staff to look at how the under fives appreciate and receive live performances, and to welcome this audience as regular customers.

"Importantly the Sticky Fingers & Toes project underlined how children need time to think and time to feel and it was also good for the front of house team to look at how we facilitate this audience."
