Half Moon is a local organisation with a national remit. Working from our base in Limehouse, East London, we give young people from birth to 18 (25 for disabled young people) an opportunity to experience the best in young people’s theatre, both as a participant and as an audience member.
Our activity includes a season of professional plays for young and family audiences, including teenagers, national touring productions and an extensive creative learning programme, including eight youth theatres.
Half Moon’s expertise is in supporting artists and young people at every stage of their creative development, providing a gateway to engagement, offering pathways for progression and experimentation and then disseminating outcomes within the wider cultural sector, through performances, touring productions, open dialogue and continuing professional development.
Half Moon is a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and receives regular funding from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, as well as many other supporters.
David Gibb's Family Jukebox in Canary Wharf
Crossrail Place Roof Garden, Crossrail Place, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5AB
Give your family a musical experience to remember with special performances of David Gibb’s Family Jukebox, interspersed with pre-performance workshops with Half Moon’s popular host, Jade Dowsett-Roberts.
Join David and his magical music Jukebox as he takes you on a trip through his hilarious and often surreal imagination, where wolves roam the school corridors, dragons live under the bed and teddy bears dance the night away at the disco.
With lots of audience interaction and chances to join in, David’s songwriting draws from a wide range of musical influences and genres including jazz, folk, reggae, and rock ‘n’ roll. With an emphasis on quality and musicianship, David’s songs are reminiscent of the classics, and sure to have you dancing and singing along within minutes.
Guaranteed to appeal equally to parents and children alike, this is music that the whole family can enjoy together!
