Tales from the Shed are vibrant, inclusive theatre shows that are perfect for young children. They are informal, lively and amazingly engaging as the performers and audience share the same space.

Every carefully planned show incorporates educational songs, movement and language games, which help promote brain development and early learning in young children. 

Having worked in partnership with early years experts over three decades, our diverse team present educational stories featuring our much loved characters – from Can-Can the beautiful bird to laid back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh! 

‘If you have young children, get yourself to this show straight away. If you don’t, borrow one or just go anyway for a wonderful reminder of the power of theatre and the sheer pleasure it can bring.’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby

Planet Play is Chickenshed’s magical world of sensory learning, wonder and exploration for babies and toddlers aged 0-3yrs. These 40 minute sessions will encourage young children to develop and explore the world around them through song, music, movement and a truly sensory experience.

Created by our Tales from the Shed   team, Planet Play has been specifically devised to encourage play and early communication development in young children. Research has shown that singing songs and rhymes on a regular basis helps to widen your child’s vocabulary and listening skills which are an essential part of learning to read, write and communicate.

So join us for musical fun and games, learn lots of new songs, play with puppets, dance and enjoy time with your little one.
