One for the youngest music-lovers, Izzy Gizmo at Stoller Hall presented by Music in the Round brings an energetic, live performance to Manchester. For children aged 3-7 and their families, this is an unforgettable show brimming with music, storytelling and heaps of fun.

Based on the best-selling children’s book Izzy Gizmo, written by Pip Jones and illustrated by Sara Ogilvie, families can expect a magical story of a creative young adventurer, Izzy Gizmo, who has come across a crow that can’t fly.

If you’re lucky, you might even see a musician or two making music on clanging pots, pans, whistles and other random household items.
