Skewbald Theatre & the Goose Green Centre present Mimi and the Mountain Dragon

This October half-term join Skewbald Theatre for an exciting story packed full of adventure, snow and dragons! With lively songs and magical puppets bringing to life Michael Morpurgo’s beautifully atmospheric tale of ‘Mimi and the Mountain Dragon’. High up in the mountains of Switzerland the villagers of Dorta bang their drums, blow their horns and ring the bells to keep the fearsome Mountain Dragon away. But this year is different, one snowy morning Mimi discovers something extraordinary – a baby dragon sleeping in her woodshed! The little creature is lost and frightened but how did he get there and what happens when his mother comes looking for him?

Suitable for families and children aged 3+ and everyone who loves stories. Adapted and directed by Hayley Byfield and Tory Sandars. Book, lyrics and music by Caroline Wigmore and Jen Green. Adapted from the book ‘Mimi and the …

There’s a tiger in South London!

Les Petits Tigres launch French language music sessions for babies & toddlers in South London. A French teacher and musician, Jackie Colchester founded Les Petits Tigres after the birth of her son to support his language learning. She struggled to find French language activities for little ones in south London and wanted to share her love of French language and music with others. With a growing Francophone community in South London and increased interest in Early Years language learning, Les Petits Tigres offers a fun and organic environment to learn French. Sessions are engaging and interactive using puppets and props. Each class begins with a story told in simple French followed by songs with actions and movement to involve the children. They are appropriate for all levels, from beginners to French speakers. Classes are an ideal way to introduce children to the French language or to provide additional support for Francophone families. Les Petits Tigres is the only provider of Early Years French in East Dulwich. You can find them as part of the excellent …
