We're delighted to welcome back The Cabinet of Living Cinema with their unique participatory live cinema events.

Live cinema performers Gareth Wilkins (harp, piano, aquaphone) and Kieron Chissik (guitar, viola) invite you to watch Studio Ghibli’s 'The Red Turtle' with live music.

Alongside this, you will be invited to create the sound of an island forest, scuttling beach creatures and seabirds in a workshop inspired by the film.

"Thanks so much for a truly amazing show - I absolutely love what you do. It’s just so unique and in a world of CGI and flashy 3D animation, the beautiful, textual, thought provoking world you opened the children up to was very special and memorable."

"This wordless animated fable follows the fortunes of a shipwrecked man on an island – and it’s a masterpiece."
