Slung Low has been offering tickets to the performances entirely for free to local primary schools and youth groups in Holbeck and Beeston. In December last year they used their annual Christmas Fayre to start a fund raising campaign and thanks to the support of local audiences they are delighted to bring free, exciting, adventurous children’s theatre to south Leeds for a week this Easter.

As an extra Easter treat for local families Slung Low will be offering a public performance on Friday 25 March 2016 at 11.30am.

All tickets are Pay What You Decide and the show is suitable for ages 5+.

The Emergency Story Unit is a secret organisation that deploy at a moment’s notice to wherever in the world there’s a story emergency. And today you get to have a look around their state of the art submarine. A submarine powered only by song!

When news arrives of a stranded penguin all the way down in Antarctica, with your help maybe, just maybe, the penguin can be saved and tell her story once again. But you’re going to have to be brave. And clever.

All aboard! There’s a story to save!

There is a very limited capacity so to reserve a ticket please email boxoffice@slunglow.org with the number of tickets you wish to reserve.

For those looking to book for a school or youth group, there are still a few spaces available throughout the week, please contact joanna@slunglow.org for more information.
