What families are saying

September 2019
Tiny Light Theatre present: POP!Poplar Union
This was absolutely lovely and heart warming and engaged my two year old throughout - it was such a warm and sweet performance with plenty to keep her attention. I would recommend this to anyone with a toddler my daughter’s age to see this show. Thank you for a lovely experience X
