Ensonglopedia of Animals

Twenty-six animal songs, one for each letter of the alphabet. But don’t expect goofy giraffes or fluffy felines. Expect extraordinary echinoderms, distressed damselflies, curious corals, batty birds and amazing arachnids. Expect the unexpected. And expect it to rhyme.

This is the new show from John Hinton, creator of the multi-award-winning ‘Scientrilogy’ of musical comedies about Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein and Marie Curie. It is the follow-up to his hit 2017 show Ensonglopedia of Science (nominated for a Children's Choice Award at Brighton Fringe 2017).

Funded by Arts Council England and the British Ecological Society. Peer reviewed by Brighton’s Sea Life Centre, Drusilla’s Zoo Park, Raystede Animal Sanctuary, and the Universities of Sussex, Durham, Bangor and Reading.

Suitable for anyone aged 5 to 105.

Tuesday 18th February 1pm
