'Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises, sounds, and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not'


How do we help children grow the skills to be confidently curious about their world at a time when anxiety and overwhelm affect so many? How do we help them become better able to cope with the unexpected?  

Explore this challenge with a sensory musical version of Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ suitable for 0-7s and fully inclusive for special and/or complex needs. Expect a twangling, painty, touchy, feely, smelly, and magical adventure delivered with Collar & Cuffs signature warmth.  

Collar & Cuffs are a multi award-winning theatre company making sensory musical shows for 0-7s and children/young people with special needs. The company mainly explores topics relating to children’s mental health, emotional development and wellbeing. Sisters, Julia, a children’s mental health specialist, and Ellie, an early-years and SEND consultant, combine their skills to bring tiny tales about big feelings to life.
