There will be musical pirates and magicians, clowns and fireworks.
After the intermission children will be invited to visit the musical zoo. Long and McQuade will have instruments of all sorts and sizes for the audience to meet and play. From Tubbi the Tuba to the Perky Picollo, they will all be waiting to meet music fans of all ages.
