Charlie and the Cotton Wool Coat

Premiered at Mansfield Museum in January 2014, for

600 Key Stage One children aged 5 - 7 years, teachers and parents. We laughed, learned, Polka danced, made puppets and flew paper aeroplanes, played 'Babcia's footsteps' to the violin and had a great day of interactive storytelling!


To book the performance/workshop in to your

school, venue or festival, contact Jayne



Charlie lives with gran, babcia.
She lovingly wraps him in cotton wool, to avoid him getting hurt. But Charlie is six now and wants to explore the world. 
Join Charlie on his exciting adventure!
