Half Moon presents, a Tam Tam Theatre production 

A leaf is born…
It grows and glows in the sunshine and the rain
Then the wind blows and it becomes colder
The leaf changes colour
In the snow, the leaf falls...
But when spring comes, a new leaf grows...

Join us as we tell the life story of a very special leaf in this warm, intimate and playful new piece for under 3s inspired by nature and the seasons. Framed within an evocative soundscape, this is the perfect introduction to theatre for the very young.

Leaf is another heart-warming play created by Tam Tam Theatre, whose previous shows for very young children include Circles in the Sand and Curious. The company’s founder, Marleen Vermeulen, created Leaf in collaboration with director Joy Haynes.

At the end of the performance, children are invited onto the stage to play among the leaves and explore a landscape created by the changing seasons.

Age guideline: 0 - 3 years

Customer Information: This performance is suitable for Under 2s and therefore, our Babes in Arms policy does not apply to this event. Tickets must be purchased for children aged 6 months or over.


'[The performer] is a warm and friendly Mother Nature figure, with foliage sprouting behind her ears and falling from her sleeves. She cares so much about a single leaf that she’ll cradle it in her arms and sing it to sleep, or dress it in a tailor-made mackintosh when it rains' Children’s Theatre Reviews

'A wonderful and all round sensory experience for babies, and a beautiful story. My 15 month old son was entranced, as we were. Thank you'' Audience member @ Half Moon

'Really gentle and magical – just like walking down the street on a crisp winter’s day kicking up the leaves, but we were in the theatre' Audience member @ Half Moon

'Thank you for the amazing show. All the children and parent’s loved it' Teacher, primary school nursery
