There’s going to be a party in the Garden and everyone is invited; only problem is, there’s one creature who is less than welcoming.

It’s a very, VERY special day in the Story Craft Garden. The creatures are all meeting by the great tree for a party…it’s going to be huge and everyone is invited, including you! The only problem is, there is one owl who is less than welcoming, especially towards anyone who looks different from him!

This highly visual show integrates Makaton sign language throughout and is packed full of enchanting puppetry, colourful characters, games, music and lots of interactive fun exploring the value of inclusivity as well as the importance of nature in our surroundings.
