10 – 2pm – Pram Talks – an interactive audio performance
Each performance lasts 45 minutes.

Created by All Things Considered Theatre Company, Pram Talks is an interactive audio performance for two parents at a time. Parents from across the Northwest have shared with us their stories about the highs and the lows of parenthood. Come and eavesdrop on their conversations as they discuss such things as: Romance after a baby, breastfeeding in public, traumatic births, what they are really thinking during the 3am feed and Post Natal Depression.

Pram Talks invites you to reflect on your own story and to start conversation with the person sitting next to you; by asking the questions you may not thought of asking.

This is a performance for two people at a time. Small babies in prams are also welcome!
You can come with a friend, a partner or a relative or on your own and we will pair you up with another parent.

The performance will involve walking a short distance but you will be guided throughout.
