Blown Away

‘A windy day, a brand new kite, for Penguin Blue a maiden flight…’

Meet Penguin Blue and friends as they go on an acrobatic Antarctic adventure full of good ideas, homesickness and the perils of kites.

With a trio of acrobatic penguins, alongside magical puppetry and live music Metta Theatre’s BLOWN AWAY is a joyous stage adaptation of Rob Biddulph’s award winning children’s book. Fun for all the family.
