Join Wild Words on their new ‘green’ family adventure from the Somerset Levels to the Mountains of France, weaving Jean Giono’s much-loved story and a traditional tale from Somerset with a mighty mole and a man who digs himself into a hole!
We are celebrating the quintessential music of Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst inspired by country folk and the poetry from Gloucester-born Ivor Gurney.
Our pre-show Playshop will teach you a song to sing in the show as well as meet the instruments that blow!
With story writer and teller Michael Loader and musician James Watts, and a mixed bag of instruments including oboe, piano and a plethora of percussion.
The event starts with the Playshop, a short break, then the show itself.
