Sweet Porridge

by Tiny Light Theatre

13 February 12 PM

Sweet Porridge by Tiny Light – an updated Grimms fairy tale with added fibre! A delicious adventure for 4-7 year olds that lets us get messy and play with our food.  Come and explore a tiny tasty world created entirely from the fridge, the kitchen cupboard and the recycling bin!   

Founded in 2013 by actor-puppeteer Ceri Ashcroft and actor-director Anna Tolputt, Tiny Light is based in Oxford and makes imaginative and immersive theatre for babies and children with a focus on puppetry.  Their first show, Cat in the Cupboard, was developed as part of Little Angels HATCH and FIRSTS schemes.  Since then they’ve developed three Early Years shows, toured nationally and internationally and developed an at home digital story-telling show.
