This was lovely, but really too advanced for a 3-month old. He had no idea what was going on and got very restless towards the end. It was also pretty pricey for a half-hour performance. I’d definitely go back when he’s a bit older, though!

My 8 month old was definitely engaged but it was £17 for both of us! The production was great but I think they need to change venue as pickled pepper books obviously charge way to much to hire the space.
