Maya’s Market

Maya’s Market

Things to see & do

“I spy with my little eye...” Maya is playing her favourite outdoor game and suddenly discovers not one, not two... but three colourful stones.

Where are they from, who do they belong to and what can they do?

Join Maya on a journey through a bustling market of pots and pans, apples and pears, ribbons and silks and bows. Meet playful market merchants who will help uncover what’s so special about the stones and why they were waiting for Maya.

An adventure full of fun and surprises for children aged 2-5 and their families.

  • Duration 25 minutes.
  • Performance in our small, cosy storytelling space.
  • We ask that you remove your shoes and put them in the provided storage area before entering the space.
