Presented by HurlyBurly

HurlyBurly invites you and your baby on a multi-sensory journey through a year in the life of a tree in this interactive opera for little ones.

With beautiful singing and relaxing music at its core Meet Me A Tree – a very first opera has familiar nursery rhymes and original songs, where babies can sing with blackbirds, march through fallen leaves, smell new blossom and feel the wind on their cheeks.

Featuring music by SchumannDelibes and Monteverdi, this is a delightful opportunity to unwind and have fun for new parents, carers and babies.

HurlyBurly creates interactive theatre for young audiences with existing classical opera and song at the core of the work as well as incorporating physical theatre, improvisation, movement and spoken word, allowing children and their grown- ups the space and freedom to experience and explore as individuals.

Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket at all times. Children under/over the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket.  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.

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
