Making & Believing: Where Imagination Comes Alive!

21 July 2022

July brought the completion of a year of creative adventures for artists, early years practitioners and the children they work with.

Sticks, cardboard boxes, corks, feathers and more were brought to life though imaginative play led by the children, who were supported by the adults. Everyone had new experiences, fun and lots of learning. 

Our Nursery lead worked closely with the two artists during this project and found that the language, creativity and confidence of the children greatly improved.

Theatre shows like Egg and Spoon by Lyngo Theatre, Babble by Flibbertigibbet Theatre and Kuuki by Arts Fraction delighted children and staff alike throughout the season. These performances were specially adapted for smaller early years spaces, offering an immersive, interactive experience for the little ones. 

The children, families and carers really enjoyed it. The company was amazing with the children, professional, energetic and we couldn’t have asked for more!

The feedback from the nurseries and families was very positive and we're very excited to be planning our next season of shows. These shows and participation residencies will take place from October 2022, and we encourage early years settings who may wish to take part to get in touch with us now via

Making & Believing is taking place in Somerset, Surrey and Derby and is supported by key partners Surrey Arts and Derby Theatre.
