Welcome to the North Pole Jazz Lounge, a magical place with a very special guest. It’s a wintery evening and it’s snowing outside, so come into the warm and join the Jazz Penguin.

What to expect

We hear the tale of how the Penguin found the Jazz, on an adventure around the world, meeting a variety of different musical animals from dancing eggs to a drumming Octopus. Expect tooting, trumpeting and bopping in this hilarious and Christmassy celebration of music.

The Legend of the Jazz Penguin features original music, brilliant puppetry and lots of fun interaction that will have children jumping for joy.

This is a relaxed performance.

About Goblin

Goblin are an acclaimed children’s theatre company dedicated to imagination, diversity and quality.

We’re interested in telling stories with positive, contemporary themes that children of all backgrounds can relate to.  It’s important for children to see themselves and their experiences reflected in the stories they are told. Goblin’s shows are characterised by innovative use of original music, wild creativity and a dose of anarchy.
Goblin believes that imagination inspires imagination, so we aim to create shows that will make young people want to tell stories, be characters, make up songs and remember the experience long after the performance finishes.”

Goblin has performed in various venues across the UK, including runs at Southbank Centre, National Theatre & Royal Exchange, Manchester, as well as two co-productions with Little Angel Theatre.
