Here’s a look back on the last year, jam-packed with musical mayhem and family fun (FYI, that works out at over 154 concerts and workshops reaching a total audience of 13,954, both publically and behind the scenes, not that we’ve been counting…)! Beatrix Potter: The Tales of Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck, August 2017It all started with our first ever show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which ran for 22 performances in August 2017. This appealed to a younger pre-school audience and so it was a lovely way to meet future fans of CCC. It was an all-round quackin’ experience that got the wee one’s imaginations running wild, the adults hopping for joy and it’s one we hope to repeat in future.  Fife Schools Project, September/October 2017CCC continued its work with Fife’s
