An Oily Cart production

An interactive, multi-sensory production for the very young, with live music, puppets and an enchanting environment.

Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree-top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock…

Nestle among branches and meet the neighbours in Oily Cart’s immersive tree-top world. The leafy canopy is home to some of the creatures you might expect, and one you definitely won’t – a tiny baby! How did the infant get up there? Who is looking after them? And how can we help? Experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of a woodland wonderland, the audience must explore to find answers.

Created by Oily Cart, a theatre company renowned for their innovation, the production is presented in three versions: one for babies and toddlers (6 months – 2 years), one for young children (3 – 5 years), and a relaxed version for young people aged 3 – 8.

Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket. Baby on lap tickets (£1) are available on selected shows for ages 0-18months.  For the baby/toddler version of Hush-A-Bye, baby on lap tickets are unavailable and child tickets must be purchased as this show is specially designed for this age group.  Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child. For further information please contact our Ticket & Information Team on 01227 769075 who will be happy to help.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
