It’s been a wet and windy start to autumn but there is plenty on in communities across the region to tempt you out to see some fantastic live performance!

If you are looking for some half term inspo take your little ones along to see Arthur’s Dream Boat on Saturday 26th October at the Steyning Centre in West Sussex – Long Nose Puppets create delightful puppetry shows for young children, and this is an enchanting tale of a little boy who has a dream.

If you’re in the Sittingbourne area on Sunday 27th October, Lily and the Albatross from Tall Tree Theatre will whisk you away onto the ocean on a small fishing boat to meet a family who face an adventure in a nightly storm. With puppets, live music and stories this is another wonderful show for young children – its on at the Avenue Theatre at 2.00pm.

If live music is more your style, The FB Pocket Orchestra takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime and popular dances of the 1920/30s – they’ll be at the Wilmington Memorial Hall in Dartford on Saturday 19th October – tickets are £16.50 and include a fish & chip supper!

Or enjoy an evening with the absurd & hilarious Gonzo Moose who bring their new show Once Upon A Time to All Saints Church, AllHallows on Saturday 27th October, a comedy fairy tale adventure bursting with physical comedy, absurd jokes and magical illusion.
