Shiny show for pre-school kids


A dazzling interactive show for children aged six months to five years is coming to Royal & Derngate’s Underground space.

The show can be seen on Friday January 15.

In a long forgotten room, two people find friendship, joy and treasure. From ordinary brown boxes comes an extraordinary array of colour, sound and texture to delight and engage. Children are invited to watch and play as all that glitters unfolds before their eyes.

Turned On Its Head is made up of dancers Liz Clarke and Oksana Tyminksa who create and perform accessible children’s dance theatre. Between them they have 40 years of experience of working with families and young audiences through dance.

Their performances are created by working directly with babies and children over extensive periods.

Shiny can be enjoyed at 11am and 2pm. Tickets cost £7. To book call the box office on 01604 624811 or online at This is an inclusive family experience and accessible to all children, including learning disabled and physically disabled audiences.
