    Beasties, beasties,
    Buzzing bees,
    I'm not scared of climbing trees.
    Splash, splash,
    Squelch in mud,
    Creeping, crawling,
    Chasing bugs

    Vince wants to explore the forest but he’s too scared to go on his own. Until one day he meets Poggle, a friendly creature who takes him on an adventure exploring the forest and the magical musical tree.

    A funny, sensory dance theatre piece for ages 0-3, with live music, clapping rhythms and bubble popping throughout!
