Join the Catherine Wheels Theatre Company in the sparkling world of White where everything is bright and new. White is a playful and highly visual show, perfect for ages 2 to 4. It’s set in the Tron’s Changing House space, which only seats 50, allowing the children to get up close and interact with the show.

The show had great reviews at the Fringe (read more here), and picked up a Fringe First award. Don’t miss it!
