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.
Are you ready? Grab a spoon. Because it’s pat-a-cake time. Pitter-patter – get the butter. Glitzy-glossy – whisk in sugar. Jokey-yolky – add the eggs.
Based on the book Pat-a-Cake Baby by Joyce Dunbar and Polly Dunbar, Long Nose Puppets offer up a marvellous moonlit show full of riotous rhyme, zany puppets and spiffy special cake; all iced with music and songs by Tom Gray, of Gomez.
Little children will feel stuffed to the brim with magic.
At the end of the performance children are invited onto the stage to meet the puppets.
Hulla Balloony Moon Time is a Long Nose Puppets production.
