Entertaining the kids has never been easier

Supersonic Kids Gig featuring Richard Dawson
26th October 2pm

Singer, storyteller and serial belly laugher, Richard Dawson introduces families to the wonders of experimental music with his playful guitar style, soaring voice and original songs from lost stories and peoples histories.

I'm attending this particular event with my family because my nephew loves music, and with a title like 'Supersonic', I know he won't need convincing to come.

The Three Billy Pigs
29th October 12.45pm and 3.30pm

Blending The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff with incredibly crafted puppets, light-hearted storytelling, live music and a little bit of eco-awareness for good measure, enjoy a couple of fairy tale classics with an unexpected twist.

I loved The Three Little Pigs story as a child, here's hoping the modern, inverted twist is just as captivating as the original stories.

Macamu
28th October 1.30pm
Macamu combine puppetry and music with a number of musical instruments for a varied, and exciting show for kids.

Musical Picnic: Midweek Explorer
The new mid-week breather with jazz singer Sara Colman promises to be a fun morning for all. Sara Colman is the established jazz artist, who is on board for educating children about music.

We all know an event is even more enjoyable if you haven't had to spend any money. I'm just hoping my nephew is as excited as I am about the prospect of a free gig.
