Looking Down on Me
An enchanting, touching and uplifting show created in partnership with Simon Says.
Losing someone you love is never easy, especially when you don't understand why they've gone. Annie worries what she has done wrong, did she cause it? All she hears is that he's looking down on her... but why?
A beautiful story told in a sensitive way to pull at the heartstrings and leave the audience full of warmth. Looking Down on Me is an enchanting, touching and uplifting puppetry performance for children aged 7+, their families and adults alike. Created in partnership with children's bereavement charity, Simon Says.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Mr Potter - Teacher
It enabled the pupils and the teachers to gain a better understanding of how grief may affect different people in different ways and how to find ways to cope with their feelings.
I liked the meaning of the story. You can always know there here but you can't see them. It was funny and the message was great.
Family Support Worker
I was really impressed with the performance and think it was beautifully and sensitively presented. I could see that it had an impact on children and parents in the room.
I liked how it taught you that if someone in your family dies, you can think happy thoughts not sad ones.
