FANTASTIC FOR FAMILIES LOGO

Little Angel Theatre and Goblin Theatre present a unique and heart-warming story brought to life with stunning puppetry that will take you soaring into the sky.


“That’s beautiful. Sparks in the air. Like glitter hanging in the sky.”

Emily wakes up one bright autumn morning to find that her feet can’t touch the ground, and no one can understand why. To everyone’s surprise Emily keeps rising higher and higher. She discovers a world that looks completely different. She’s not scared at all – it’s fun being high up. But she’s not coming down…

Emily Rising is a brand new show written by award-winning playwright Dan Rebellato and is touring as part of Little Angel Theatre's 'Take Flight' strategic touring project.

Age Guidance: 7 - 11 years
Running Time: 50 minutes

The Hat Factory

The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.

It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.

The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.

The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
