trunk with julia mcghee

Trunk is an exciting interactive performance created by Julia McGhee for children aged between 4 and 6 years.

Since launching in 2013, Trunk has been seen by over 700 children and adults in different venues, from village halls to festivals to over 30 Highland schools.  

The performance centres on a large travelling trunk containing a collection of objects.  As each object appears or new sound is heard from inside the trunk, the children become participants in an exciting adventure which sees them go on a train journey, enjoy a day on the beach and explore the wonders of a fast flowing river until they complete their journey underneath the stars.

Trunk is currently touring to schools and nurseries in Highland region but we are always looking for new audiences and are very open to exploring new venues and locations.

I had two staff members with tears in their eyes. You need to let more people know about this, it is so wonderful for pre-school sector
