“Let’s have a party,” Chutney said, “With yummy things to eat!”

This concert for families, with music by Children’s Composer-in-Residence, Paul Rissmann, is based on the book by the award-winning duo behind Giraffes Can’t Dance, Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees. The story is brought to life through brilliant live music, irresistibly catchy songs, vivid storytelling, bright illustrations and lots of audience participation.
