We currently run 50-minute sessions that explore vivid worlds through gentle theatrical play and song for children aged five and under. We run live ticketed sessions for families in Bristol and also come to pre-schools, libraries and other Early Years groups.
Our sessions are all about engaging with immersive stories through theatrical sets, props and characters. But above all, the sessions are a relaxed and inclusive place for little ones to play, imagine and sing together.
Make Do & Mend
Autumn is here and it's time to make do and mend! Come and help us sing our way through our mending pile - there's socks to darn, a giant scarf to make and lots of hats to try on.
Whatever The Weather
Explore all the weathers and emotions we might see on an autumnal day. Splash through storm clouds and bask in the sunshine, all while singing some lovely songs and harmonies.
We're Going On A Lion Hunt
We're bringing the American folk song to life as we hunt through swishy grass, mud, trees, and a river full of fish. Brave lion-spotters are needed to help us sing and spot wildlife!
We're setting off in our sleigh on an adventure to find our very own winter wonderland! Expect dressing up, festive songs, Christmas tree dances and a giant snowy igloo...
We're back! Thanks to all of the generous donations to our fundraising campaign this summer, we're able to run one venue of ticketed shows for Autumn 2023. Read more →
£6 per person (+ booking fee)

Each person attending needs their own ticket, for each adult and child in the group. Additional siblings under 3 months old are free.

We’ve been running sessions across the South West UK for over ten years, working to instil a love for theatre, boost motor and language skills and support physical and emotional development.
Our 50 minute sessions support the EYFS structure, encouraging children to participate physically and verbally, sing along, move around and engage with immersive and vivid worlds.
All of our sessions include two performers, set, props, costumes and all materials for games and activities. Contact Lotte at companymanager[at]dragonbirdtheatre.co.uk to find out more about the sessions including prices and upcoming availability.
