Larks In The Park
Larks in the Park, a three day festival of music, participation and exercise for young
people and their families, took place in award-winning Barrow Park. Conceived as a means to inspire young people and their families to share a healthier diet and desire to exercise, the show was delivered to primary schools from Barrow-in-Furness.
The production comprised five performances with each story linked by the theme of healthy eating and exercise. The stories included puppets, music and movement, with each involving the audience in a physical activity.
Teachers’ comments included:
“It was excellent. It was entertaining on adult and pupil levels.”
“Children kept referring to ‘5 a day’. This made an impact on their topic of discussion in school.”
“Something bit different in the park other than just going to play area or duck feeding and a walk or picnic. Pirate was a big hit. Funny for kids and big kids! Well done.”
