Only A Year is an immersive, sensory theatre event designed for babies aged 0-12 months and their carers.

Using shadow, light, wind, rain, sun and heat to convey seasons, this beautiful, tactile performance explores the idea that the first year of life is experienced by both baby and carer as the longest, but also shortest time imaginable.

Only A Year features a poetic blend of live music, sound, puppetry, physical theatre and storytelling; creating a delightful and shared experience for both you and your little one.
