Step inside the Green Leaf Forest to tightrope walk across a dancing river, tame a furry lion cub and make music with some very rascally frogs. Embark with Pepper the mischievous monkey on his adventures to join the Rainbow Circus. This immersive storytelling concert features chamber arrangements of Schumann’s music (including Carnaval and Kinderszenen) and an original story from Kate Wakeling, critically-acclaimed poet and Aurora Writer-in-Residence. Audiences are invited to listen, sing, dance and enter a magical world of music, discovery and play.

For children aged 0-5 and their families. Babies aged 6 months and younger do not need a ticket for this event.

There are also shows taking place on Sat 9 July – find out more here.

Far, Far Away is generously supported by Arts Council England, Kings Place Music Foundation, Signatur, the umbrella name for The Karlsson Játiva Charitable Foundation’s work for the advancement of the art of music, and the Aurora Patrons & Friends.
