Falling Star is a community pop-up show, designed to be performed in halls and smaller spaces. A twinkling, cheerful story for wee ones all about stars, outer space and finding your place. Created by Kirsty Pennycook and company and inspired by the children of Creative Kin, a Starcatchers community engagement project. We thank them for trusting us with their stories.

“I was able to sit in and watch an absolutely magical show for young children by @starcatchersuk. Possibly the best piece of children's theatre I've ever seen!!"
