Christmas is coming… and at Christmas, magic really is everywhere, even in Space! Experience The Gift at Z-Arts in Manchester this festive season, with interactive puppetry for younger children aged 2-4 to enjoy. Head to the Z-Arts foyer for the countdown to take-off, then fasten your spacesuits and get ready to be blasted off into the solar system and through the stars in this sparkling new production, created especially for the youngest audiences by award-winning Early Years practitioners.

Reach the outer-most limits of sensory heaven in this visual storytelling performance, with immersive sounds and dazzling lights rippling through the room. Meet Noli, a sad and grumpy astronaut. Noli is about to launch into their biggest adventure yet – making a special new friend! The incredible lights, sounds and narrative will take you right into the centre of Noli’s story. You will be won over by the curious and friendly robot Zee, brought to life by a renowned puppetry team. Together, Noli and Zee will embark on a festive adventure across the Universe they will never forget, and discover the best gift of all at Christmas – friendship.

So visit Z-Arts this Christmas for a memorable and Covid-secure theatre experience, presented by Touched Theatre.
