EARLY YEARS.png

Discover our popular parent and baby / toddler & pre-school groups - where we bring our unique, creative approach to early-years performance, storytelling and play. 

We have commissioned five professional artists to visit FIRST and SECOND workshops from September to Christmas. An artist chosen by the group will then lead a 4 week creative process - creating memories to share and treasure.

Second Workshops.jpg

Our Second Workshops are weekly sessions for toddlers 19 months - 3 years, and their parents / carers. Themed, creative workshops that inspire you and your toddler to have fun together. In Brighton and Hastings.

Our First Workshops were so popular, we had to expand to the next age group because none of our parents wanted to leave when their babies got older! 

"Wacky, beautiful, funny, and full of heart."

Book a term of workshops and come along every week. Sessions last for an hour and a half, with refreshments. Free spaces and travel bursaries are available for single parents, parents under 25, or parents on Universal Credit. Book your space via the Eventbrite Links below:

FIRST AUDIO STORIES FROM EARLY PARENTHOOD

In summer 2021, we invited performance artist Katie-anna Whiting to visit our First Workshops in Hastings & St Leonards, Brighton, Bedford and Winchester. Katie ran puppetry sessions and asked parents to share their memories and stories from the first 18 months of their baby's life. These stories have now been transformed into an audio series pieced together by theme. We hope you enjoy these short videos which many new parents can relate to

PART ONE: ADVICE

PART TWO: PREGNANCY

PART THREE: LOCKDOWN BABIES
