Jigsaw Juniors present a concert for the whole family intertwining musical masterpieces with words specially-selected and presented by Jigsaw Poet-in-Residence, Kate Wakeling, including extracts from her 2017 CLiPPA award-winning poetry collection for children, "Moon Juice". 

Entitled "Animals and their song", the celebrated Jigsaw Players will perform works by Saint-Saens, Rimsky Korsakov, Gershwin and many other greats. To conclude the concert children will be given an opportunity to sing and dance as we spin the Jigsaw Song Wheel. A fun morning not to be missed!
