About Animals!

The animals are gathering.

But one species hasn't turned up, and it's the species which has been causing all the trouble.

Something's got to be done, and whatever it is, it's going to be wild!

Fun, interactive and featuring original songs, Animals! is an empowering and uplifting performance about animals, humans and nature. It celebrates the amazing wildlife around us and makes big things feel possible.

Dens & Signals bring people together to create connections, shared moments, and future possibilities.

Support for you at The Den and The Burrow

We want people who have a disability/health condition/support need (and their friends/carers/families) to know that they are welcome, valued and have support if they need it.

We have created specific spaces called The Burrow (for adults and secondary aged young people) and The Den (for preschool and primary school children) that can be visited should anyone in your party like/need a little bit of time out from the larger event.

The Den and The Burrow are quiet drop-in zones providing support for anyone, including those who - 

  • Feel anxious or overwhelmed
  • Need to take medication/tend to a condition and would like privacy
  • Are experiencing sensory overload
  • Have any support needs

I have (or some I’ll be with) has a disability/ health condition/ access needs which may prevent us from attending, is additional access support available? 

Yes, we want to make sure you and those you are with  feel safe, comfortable and cared for when you come to the sessions. In order for us to achieve this care we need to know about your needs so we actively encourage you to let us know any health conditions/ disabilities/ access needs you and your group have.

Please call/ text/ whatsapp Kerry on 07907 823125.

She can chat with you to explore any specific needs you may have in relation to the sessions (including spatial, sensory, social, physical and mental) so you can feel safe and your needs are understood.
