“Trunk” is an exciting interactive performance created for children aged between 3 and 6 years and their parents/carers. The performance centres on a large travelling trunk containing a collection of objects. As each object appears or new sound is heard from inside the trunk, the children become participants in an exciting adventure which sees them go on a train journey, enjoy a day on the beach and explore the wonders of a fast flowing river till they complete their journey underneath the stars.
“I loved the magic trunk, the stories, music. It was the bestest”
