About: Tales from the Shed

This interactive performance introduces children to a universe where there is no edge to the stage, so children and performers travel a theatrical journey together. Each show is different, but all work creatively to improve literacy, numeracy and communication skills for the under 7s.

Tales is performed on Fridays and Saturdays in The Studio Theatre at Chickenshed, with occasional extra shows on a Thursday. The Chickenshed foyer bar is open before and after each Tales performance selling teas, coffees, a selection of cold drinks and snacks. On Fridays a full lunchtime menu is available.

Party in the Shed!
Why not bring all your friends and family and celebrate your birthday or special occasion at a Tales from the Shed performance at Chickenshed. We can host parties after the 11.30am performance on Saturdays. Email here for more information.

'If you have young children, get yourself to this show straight away. If you don't, borrow one or just go anyway for a wonderful reminder of the power of theatre and the sheer pleasure it can bring.' * * * * * Broadway Baby
