Every spring, Nelson Arts Festival brings the city alive with its non-stop programme of theatre, dance, music, talks, exhibitions and community events. Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019, it is now New Zealand’s longest-running annual arts festival.
Is it ever too soon to take your baby to the theatre? Not with this show!
Up and Away is a playful and gentle theatrical performance created exclusively for babies. Two performers interweave elements of theatre, play and live music in a half-hour performance, which culminates in free play and exploration-time for baby audience members.
Audience numbers are limited to a small group, and only pre-walking babies may attend. This results in a calm, safe atmosphere and optimal conditions for babies to engage in the performance – the first of its kind in New Zealand.
