Sunny Days and Insect Hands  will inspire you to look a little more closely at the world around you, get moving, get outside and play.   

This double bill is accompanied with interactive activities and the films are available with or without audio description.  

Created by Rosie Heafford, winner of the Arts Foundation Children’s Theatre Shortlist Award.

Sunny Days 

Duration: 5 mins

Feel, hear & smell the world around you. Roll in the long grass, scrunch it beneath your fingers & take a long deep breath.  

Sunny Days encapsulates the magic of being free, of moving with abandon, and playing in the outdoors. A dance film for little explorers. 


Insect Hands 

Duration: 7 mins  

Join Takeshi & his animated mini-beast friends for a dance in the great outdoors. A dance that invites you to look a little more closely at the world around you.  

Autumnal blooms, tickly toes & scrunchy leaves inspire you to get outside, get moving, & play. How many insects can you spot?  

Both Films also available with Audio Description for those with sight loss
