Poet Simon Mole and musician Gecko have joined forces to write and perform a new show for children, aged 5+, and families. Mole & Gecko: THE SHOW tells the story rather aptly of a mole and a gecko, with the help of the audience. There are live songs, rap stories, instant poems and a weasel with a serious biscuit problem. Join our heroes as they discover that what they thought they were searching for might be less important than what they find along the way.

Studio recordings of two songs from the show, The Name Song and The Friend Ship, have been released on YouTube, giving a sneak preview of the interactive rap musical.
