From the creative team who brought you Walter (winner of the Best Children's Show Award, British Theatre Guide 2017), comes a brand new fantastical family friendly show – Rocket Girl.

In this story we follow nine year old Georgina on her adventure to design and build the very first Rocket, years before the famous George Stephenson. But instead of railroads, Georgina dreams of getting to the moon to dig for Cinder toffee (left by the toffee-dragons, as she has been told by Nana Nora) to make her fortune for her family and village.

'Everyone's an Inventor' workshop:

After each performance you will have the chance to invent and build your own creations from recycled materials, just like our Rocket Girl Georgina, in our FREE 'Everyone's an Inventor' workshop with the Little Inventors! Come and let your imagination run riot and become an engineer!

What do you think Georgina would invent if she was here today? How would you travel to the moon? Join Little Inventors to draw and make a model of your own invention idea!
