Woodland Creatures

Venture into the woods to discover a fun mixture of live music, puppetry and the incredibly hard working Woodland Creatures. Celebrating the nature of play, children are invited to become one of the pack, joining the Creatures in their natural habitat and assisting them in carrying out daily tasks. 


Woodland Creatures is a gentle and charming interactive show, exploring children’s relationship with their local natural environment. Suitable for children aged 2-8.


Woodland Creatures toured to twelve woodland areas across Aberdeenshire, Moray and the Highlands in August 2021, bringing audiences out of lockdown hibernation by connecting children with the nature on their doorsteps. Devised to inspire children aged 2-8 through creative engagement, Woodland Creatures is an engaging and playful 1 hour show, where audiences were seated in socially distanced nests, making for a natural and safe way for families to engage and creatively play during socially distanced times.
