A brand new family friendly show tours the UK and is coming to Northumberland this spring.

Families get ready for an adventure in dance and music – meet two wild, wonderful and woolly creatures, String and Strong, who just can’t get along.

Across this gorgeously fun and interactive show, attendees are invited to teach String and Strong about friendship whilst they try to understand the world around them and each another through dance, sound and colourful curiosity. And of course, through this 45mins performance, we may very well finally answer a very silly, but very important question: just how long is a piece of String?

This is a brilliant show, made by a wonderfully talented folks. The show innovatively uses interactive technology to get kids involved, recording their voices as they enter the theatre space to add to the musical score.

The show is perfect for children 3-7 families and friendly creatures from another dimension…
