Onwards and Upwards

 Deep underground, beneath scrambled wires and twisting pipes lives Luna; an inventor and fixer of broken bits and bobs.

Luna’s never lost her bobble hat to a gust of wind, skated on ice, or even thrown a snowball! In fact, she’s never been to Uptop at all. She’s got everything she needs right here in Downblow.

But when a broken compass clatters into her workshop, Luna’s world is turned upside down as she uncovers the extraordinary real-life adventures of the first women to cross oceans, skies and to reach the very top of the world.
Could Luna become an explorer too?

With their signature blend of storytelling, puppetry and beautiful live music INKBLOC ensemble return to The Rondo Theatre this Christmas with a wild and wintery story about digging deep, for explorers of all ages!

Big Scream! 

Big Scream performances accommodate very young children – these performances will operate a ‘Babes in Arms’ policy which means that a child of 18 months or younger does not need a ticket providing they can be held by a parent/guardian. 

Relaxed Performance

Christmas shows should be for everyone – and The Rondo is committed to accessibility, with several Relaxed Performances of Onwards & Upwards. Relaxed Performances are for everyone, but lighting is less harsh, house lights remain on and audience members are free to make noise and move around the theatre. A break out area will be available in the foyer. The only rule is: no shushing!
