Close your eyes and fly up high, sour above the clouds and float gently in the breeze, dreaming of adventures far below. Join us for a bird’s eye view amongst multi-coloured balloons, brolly and an assortment of feathery friends in this magical and touching show full of laughter and the unexpected, as we journey into the enchanting world of a child’s imagination.

Featuring a cast of 12 with live music and singing throughout, Up, Up and Away continued Half Moon’s on-going collaboration with one of the UK’s leading drama schools, Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, following the hugely popular Scrub a Dub, Dig and Delve and Colour.
