Buzz – a Bee-rilliant Adventure! Join Billy Bumble as he shrinks down to bee-size and learns about the troubles that bees face. Featuring spell-binding puppetry and a giant honeycomb set, join us for a whirlwind ride, avoiding grumpy Mr Fred and the gaping jaws of Shredder the dog! A show that gives the audience a chance to see things from a Bees-eye-view, Buzz finishes with the audience being given wildflower seeds, to plant and help our black and yellow friends to flourish. 

Grow is an energetic and uplifting family-friendly dance theatre duet which celebrates the power of nature to rejuvenate, take over spaces and grow through the cracks. Eithne and Beth explore the order and chaos in the natural world and what we all need to thrive, providing audiences of all ages with both an entertaining take on gardening and a touching commentary on the future of humanity.
