Children's Suitcase Show

Why we need your help

If Not Here… Where? is a show that has been produced by Little Angel Theatre in partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital, with funding from BBC Children in Need and NESTA. Inspired by stories and ideas from inpatients, outpatients and the Young People’s Forum at GOSH, the show is designed to pack down into a small box and be performed at the end of a child’s hospital bed for those who are unable to leave the hospital. It incorporates puppetry and a digital app which will allow the child to make choices throughout the performance which will influence the way the story goes – ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ style. At the end of the performance children are able to interact through this app with others who have seen the show before them and may be in a similar situation in hospital.


The show toured throughout February 2020 to children’s hospitals and hospices across the UK, including: Great Ormond Street; Alderhey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool; Leeds Children’s Hospital; and Shooting Stars Hospice in Middlesex.
Please help us to visit more hospitals and reach more children by making a donation to support our tour in 2021 and 2022.


We currently have funding to deliver 90 performances over three years. However, there are many more children and young people in hospital/hospice settings and/or using hospital services who we would like to reach.  By making a donation today you can help us reach many more isolated and vulnerable children and young people. We would like to raise an additional £14,000 to deliver up to 180 more performances in 2021 and 2022.


If Not Here… Where? allows children and young people to imaginatively escape the clinical environment and explore a magical world far from the walls of the hospital.


“Every single patient found it a magical experience”


“The production was led by the needs of patients and the environment, without compromising on quality. The story telling totally captivated the audience, and the opportunity for children and young people to make choices throughout was particularly powerful in a hospital setting.”


“The show was so appropriate, universal, warm, gentle and engaging. It is rare to see work of this quality”.
