News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

March at the egg theatre in Bath begins with an exciting, international adventure in Adrift (pictured above), bringing together mime artists from Brazil and Spain, and original music from members of The Mighty Boosh for a nautical journey.

Two children are in a boat. They play, they laugh, they argue! They dream of catching a fish so big it will capsize the boat, or of encountering a mermaid to sing for them, or a whale that they can lasso to pull them to shore. They dream of a new land of thick green grass and endless blue skies, a safe land…

Told with tenderness, humour and Action Transport Theatre’s signature visual storytelling, Adrift plays on 7 March and is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood. (ages 7+)
