The Mag­i­cal Music Tree

The hunters are coming and if this tree falls, so do the Fish, Dodo and Unicorn sheltering among its magical musical leaves…

We are the music, come and join us
We are the music, listen to us
We are joined as one in every song
In the music tree, we all belong

A group of mythical creatures - dodos, unicorns and fish - call a tree in the heart of the woods home. A group of hunters want to capture these creatures and decide to blow up The Magical Music Tree. They’re not music lovers, not yet anyway. Eventually the wise unicorns come up with a cunning plan that has everyone singing in harmony.

All those who took part agreed the experience was fantastic, and family and friends were amazed by the performance.
