To help us adhere to current government guidelines on social distancing and to give you and your little one the best experience possible our Baby Boo sessions are currently running as two groups, pre-walkers and walkers.

Baby Boo pre walkers session 10am – 11:30am:

Baby Boo is back, we have developed a series of socially distanced early years bubbles. In your bubble you and your little one will go on a sensory journey, with individual items to explore as well as exploring light and sound, using our theatre lights to create a multi sensory experience.
The session will last for 1hour 30minutes.
For pre-walkers only.

Baby Boo walkers session 1pm – 2pm:

Baby Boo is back with a specially developed socially distanced multi sensory sessions. Each month you and your little one will go on a journey of discovery exploring a different sense; light, sound, touch and movement from your own socially distanced bubble.
This session will last for 1hour. 
For walkers only.
If you are planning on visiting us here are a few things you need to know:
To make sure the session runs viably and safely we ask that you restrict your bubble to one grown-up and where possible one baby.
If you need to make a booking with multiple children, please contact before booking and where ever possible we will try to accommodate your booking.
Grown-up and baby will be given their own allocated space to explore. We have minimised the use of soft furnishing in this session. There is a duvet per bubble but if you would like extra blankets/ pillows please bring your own.

Due to social distancing measure places are limited at these sessions.We hold the ‘Good To Go’ Industry Standard. Meaning we adhere to the government guidance for our industry for COVID-19. We have all the relevant risk assessments and processes in place to maintain cleanliness and social distancing.

Booking for both sessions will open at 9am on Friday 9th October

We have made our current programme of events “Pay What You Can” to make our events affordable to all our audience. However if you are able to donate the price of a ticket this will help us to continue to keep theatre affordable to all.





Created by H+B, Baby Boo is a project designed to engage with parents and very young children all around Rossendale.

Through Baby Boo we try to create spaces and situations where parents and their babies and toddlers can have fun together, play, hear stories, and explore the world around them.

We create exciting story installations at our theatre, the Boo – sensory journeys for young families to experience together – Springtime, Babies in Space and  Babies in Bloom have used  puppetry, lights, projections, live music, a rocket, a restaurant, inflatable plants, soup, sand  and lots and lots of sensory play to create immersive theatre experiences.


We have also created a series of small shows which are performed in non-theatre spaces across the Rossendale valley – at nurseries, libraries, parent and child groups and village halls. Round and Round, Babies in Space (little version), Pom, and Midnight and Anna have all toured around Rossendale for parents and babies to enjoy together in places that they already visit, and which are close to their homes.
