Find out about the man who thought birds migrated to the moon, the crows who brought gifts to a 10 year old girl and the greatest pigeon hero of the Second World War! The Goldfield Ensemble weave their trademark mix of storytelling and live music for string trio and percussion with simple shadow puppetry to bring three remarkable (and true!) stories to our younger audiences. You’ll never hear or look at a bird in the same way again…

3SAB3‘Simply outstanding – it made me re-think how we can tell stories’(Westfield Primary School)
‘My children couldn’t stop talking about it when we went back to our classroom.. all the children were engaged, interested and enthralled by the stories, puppetry and music…. you grabbed their attention, caught their imaginations and held them with great timing, action and of course the amazing music’
(Steeple Morden Primary School)
‘We were hugely impressed with the Goldfield Ensemble…The children (and adults) were entranced by the experience and I found that the standard of playing and storytelling just astonishing. Even the youngest (still 4 years old) were glued to the concert.’
(Foxton Primary School)

‘beautiful, thoughtful, mesmeric, funny and what wonderful music…what a terrific and imaginative way to tell stories with music and it appealed to all of our children from year 1 to year 6’
