New Episode Premiere!

A team of balloonists have failed on a trip to the moon and are now hopelessly trapped circling the earth, with nothing to eat but sardine-flavoured Hula Hoops and nothing to do except tell each other stories…

Now they are running out of stories and need your help!

Able to make radio contact with earth at certain positions of orbit, the intrepid travellers ask for one thing and one thing only: more story ideas please!

Can you, the people of earth, help the balloonists keep their hopes up – and their marbles, by sending them fresh stories?

Listen to the results of the fresh stories as the balloonists fire their audio recordings back down to earth throughout the year, made available by helpful theatres and arts centres across the UK. See GET INVOLVED [opens in new tab] for more info.

It's been a tough 18 months or so, and we know that like the Balloonists, children in particular have suffered from the effects of isolation. We're working with Play Therapist Fleur Alexander to provide resources to support child wellbeing through play. Free resources will soon be available to download from the button below.
