Kid Carpet @ Arlington Arts
Feb 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Kid Carpet and the Noisy Animals present…

Noisy Holiday

The Noisy Animals are looking forward to their dream holidays and have some brilliant ideas about where in the world they want to go. Kid Carpet just wants them all to be together but will he be able to keep everyone happy when he can’t even get them in the car?

This lively show contains a mix of live music, theatre, comedy, puppetry and animation. Hot new tracks from Kid Carpet include; “Rollercoaster”, “Swimming with the Fishes” and “Get in the Car”.

A ridiculous and funny story of going on your holidays with silliness and mischief for the whole family. Expect flying tents, diving bears, massive carrots and Ibiza anthems.

Ed Patrick (aka Kid Carpet), is a Bristol-based maker of nonsense music and rock’n’roll theatre shows. Noisy Holiday is the fourth instalment of the Noisy Animals adventure, they’ve had a dance contest, they’ve been to space, they’ve caused bedlam in Bethlehem now it’s time for a nice relaxing holiday…

Alice in Wonderland The Pantomime @ Kennet School
Feb 15 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Alice in Wonderland The Pantomime @ Kennet School | England | United Kingdom

KATS invite you to their next show, a fun-filled, pantomime version of the classic tale “Alice in Wonderland”. We are so excited to take you on this journey, with a show packed full of fun and laughter with some well-known songs and crazy dances.

Join Alice as she takes a tumble down the rabbit hole to a strange and wonderful land where she meets a talking cat, takes tea with a Mad Hatter and his private secretary the March Hare, she gets lost, and found again and narrowly avoids having her head cut off by the wicked Queen of Hearts! Nothing is quite as it seems in this strange topsy-turvy world, where animals and playing cards all seem to be able to talk.

Will Alice ever be able to make sense of all the strange characters she meets and find her way home again?
