Half Moon’s regular season of children’s theatre and theatre for young people runs from September to April. We programme some shows and special events during the rest of the year, but on a less frequent basis.

If you are a school or other community group looking to book a show, please see our Schools Shows page. It is often possible to programme an additional performance of one of our Half Moon presents shows, at Half Moon or your own setting.

Please note: Age ranges are recommended by the visiting companies. They serve as a guide only and we welcome siblings or other children from outside of the age range.
