Dandylion & the Sad Stem at The Stoller Hall at The Stoller Hall, Manchester 26 March 2023 Tickets from £5.00 — Book now

Music loving pre-schoolers and their grown ups are invited to Stoller Story Sounds: Dandylion & the Sad Stem at The Stoller Hall in an immersive, musical workshop taking place on Sunday 26 March.

As spring peeks its head across the hills, it’s time to come out of that winter hibernation with the flowers and the lambs and head down to The Stoller Hall, where Dandylion is on a mission to help a sad flower stem find his lost petals that have drifted in the wind.

This energetic, interactive session led by storyteller Carla Henry and illustrator Lizzie Finlay tells a rich and moving tale about about friendship, finding your voice and being yourself. The fantastic, heart-warming storyline is brought to life with the rich, joyful sounds of live music featuring throughout the session.

Dandylion & the Sad Stem creates a new, emerging world of fun and creativity for young people through song, drawing and spoken word. It’s worth wearing your best dancing shoes for this session, as the fun and catchy music is bound to beckon you to dance and sing along!

At only one hour long and packed with audience interaction and energy, this is a perfect first live-music experience to keep the full attention younger music lovers aged 3-5. Parents and carers will love it too, with the catchy tunes, the safe and welcoming environment, and the endless smiles glued to the faces of the little ones as they boogie non-stop.

Even more exciting, attendees of Dandylion & the Sad Stem are entitled to one free ticket to The Ayoub Sisters on Wednesday 19 April (use code: DANDELION when purchasing tickets – easy.)
