In this interactive children’s show, we meet Barney the horse…but Barney is no ordinary horse – he’s got feet the size of the biggest clouds you’ve ever seen in the sky! Sometimes his feet get in the way of his adventures, but one sunny afternoon Barney visits the beach and decides to give swimming a try – will he succeed? Or will he let his feet get in the way of his newfound dreams?

“Josephine’s Stories are life-affirming and inspiring”

Josephine’s Stories was founded in 2020 by Josephine Helen. We focus on approaching taboo topics in a light and fun way, enabling children to see that they are never alone and that there’s always someone who feels just as they do. This story was written by Josephine and brought to life by Ashleigh Summer Edwards and herself.

Josephine trained in Musical Theatre at Chichester Conservatoire and Ashleigh trained in Theatre and Performance at Guilford School of Acting. Both have over five years professional theatre experience between them – from Murder Mysteries to children’s theatre, they’ve done it all! They really hope you enjoy today’s show and learn that you can do anything you set your mind to.

aimed at ages 5-10
