Told through magical, theatrical chamber music and performed by exceptional musicians, Smile takes the audience on a delightful musical adventure. For children aged 3 - 6 years and their families. The performance is 40 minutes long. Families can also enjoy Museum activities, including a tiger trail and crafts after the show. 

Based on the book Augustus and his Smile, written and illustrated by Catherine Rayner and published by Little Tiger Press.
