A New York Times and Time Out New York,

Top Things to do with Kids’


’In one word, Nest is a joy.’

British Theatre Guide


Audiences say 

‘'Exceptional...every single element was spot on'

​'There was a sense of wonder and excitement. My child was enchanted'

​'The best half hour of my child's life!'

Wonder at the world in a multi-sensory experience for pre-walking babies and their parents, guardians or carers.

Unfolding in a custom-built performance tent, Nest takes audiences on a journey through the seasons, using playful poetry supported by an original score, captivating movement, puppetry and tactile and sensory play. Gentle, surprising and magical.

Nest has had over 100 performances in the UK, including a sold out UK tour, with venues including Brighton Dome, Southbank Centre and The Lowry. Its international premiere was at Lincoln Center in New York in 2019, and it will be returning to the US in 2021. Nest is available for UK and international bookings.
