We can't wait to kick off 2017 with Putting the Band Back Together back on the road. First stops are Leicester on 27 Jan and South Shields on 31 Jan. There are lots of tour dates and you can find them all here. Fancy joining us onstage? Find out how to join our house band.

Seen the show and still humming the songs? Buy our CD here.

We were knocked out by this beautiful article about the show by Duska Radosavljevic. Also, find out what happened when Guardian journalist, Alexis Petridis joined our house band at Edinburgh Festival.

We'd also like to say a big thank you to everyone of the 3,192 people who came and took part in our Frost of Forgetfulness Winter Quest at Woodhorn Museum. Commissioned by Woodhorn and bait, it was an incredibly special project for small adventurers. You can see photos of the event here.

Over the last 2 years, we have been part of very special collaboration, The Mums & Babies Ensemble. We ran events at GIFT Festival, Lyric Hammersmith, London Bubble and Camden People's Theatre. Mums talked about labour, love, time passing and new life beginning. Babies played, cried, slept and fed. Now our babies aren't babies any more, we are passing the ensemble on. Our instruction manual is now onsale here. New mums and babies ensembles are already finding their feet.

Fancy finding out more about what we've been up to? Our 2014/15 Annual Report is online. Read about our adventures here.
