Roll, squeeze and pop yourself through a new malleable kind of family dance show, set to a funky 1970s soundtrack, including disco favourites The Hustle and Car Wash. Dance company Turned On Its Head makes exciting participatory theatre for early years, taking children on a creative journey, engaging audiences throughout its performances and encouraging lots of family interaction.

Everything in Sponge can be made with simple materials at home so there’s plenty more fun to be had after leaving the theatre.

Performances for ages 4 months – under 4s and their grown - ups!

Thanks to support from The Spark.


Please note: Latecomers may not be admitted to this performance, this is unto the discretion of the venue management.  No refunds will be due for latecomers

    Children are like sponges. They absorb all your strength and leave you limp, but give them a squeeze and you get everything back.

    what an awesome show today! My 14 month old had probably the most gleeful 40 mins of his life so far. Sponge is a delight!”
