A Tangled Feet and Half Moon co-production

Joe and Ella are a great team - they make each other laugh, help each other out and tackle all the chores their busy lives throw at them. But one morning things begin to change when Joe gets all tangled up and Ella has to do things alone. What will Ella do now? Will she be able to continue as before, or will it all get too much? If only she had a little help…

Based on the experiences of young carers, the piece explores what it means to look after someone else when you are young. In a playful and immersive space, the young audience will help the performers look after each other, stepping into the shoes of young carers.

Need a Little Help is a deeply moving and joyfully uplifting piece of interactive and physical theatre from award-winning ensemble Tangled Feet, working in partnership with children’s theatre specialists, Half Moon.

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 0-18months.  Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child.

Wow! It’s Night Time

The curious little owl is back, and this time she’s ready to discover the wonders of night-time, from the big, bright moon to the bats in the sky and the foxes deep in the forest.

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.
