Primary Times

I took my six-year-old yesterday and we both absolutely loved it. My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it. Thanks for another memorable performance!!

Kyoko, audience member

We came to see you in the first week of the festival with grandchildren. It was completely brilliant and they sat transfixed. It’s so reassuring to see such great work being performed and to see so many young children being taken to see live theatre. The power of theatre! Well done. See you next year.

Margaret, audience member

A charming story of discovering that there’s as much to explore in the space you occupy in the world, as there is between here and the moon★★★★


Alfie White: Space Explorer is a wonderful show... My children and I loved it.

Jen, audience member

Fabulous show this afternoon – lovely story and well acted. I loved every minute and was just as enthralled as my 6 1/2 year old grandson. Highly recommend Alfie White: Space Explorer – a magical experience for children and adults.

Janice, audience member

There are some wonderful set pieces of 60s music, physical performance, and science geekery... Tall Stories’ storytelling by Olivia Jacobs and Toby Mitchell effectively captures the attention of older children with its sense of family and mystery.

Total Theatre

A great children’s show that adults will also love, and very moving – go and see Alfie White: Space Explorer!

Rosie, audience member

I took my 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter to see this show and we all really enjoyed it. We’ve seen Tall Stories productions before and this show was of the same high standard. Jordan Turner and Lucy Tuck both gave excellent performances and the storyline was engaging and thought provoking.
