Oily Cart

Light Show

LIGHT SHOW is for 3–11 year olds and comes in two tailored versions:

1. For children with profound and multiple learning disabilities

2. For those on the autism spectrum

Oily Cart invites you into a magical paper palace, where the sensory delights of nature unfold to provide the audience with a fully immersive experience.  

Creating distinct silhouettes, in an exquisite play of light and shadow, a serene papery white landscape transitions from a beautiful warm day at the beach to a dreamy moonlit wonderland.  The show takes participants on a multi-sensory journey of textures, smells and tactile experiences, all accompanied by enchanting live music from a virtuoso double bass player.  

LIGHT SHOW is a unique immersive experience, with performers adapting to the specific requirements of each individual in the audience.

There is an Interactive Social Story available to download for free from the iBooks store onto ipads, type ‘Light Show by Tim Webb’ in the search field and it will appear as the only option.

This show is touring from 23rd May - 10th July 2016, for more information email


"Entering an Oily Cart production is like entering a different world, and it’s one every child should experience."

Children's Theatre Reviews

"It's a show with minimal dialogue—a few of the simplest words, gently created from music and movement, touch, sight, sound and smell too. Its appreciative audience may not believe it but Oily Cart doesn’t always achieve every aim that it sets itself—always striving to provide a better experience. What is certain is that they make a huge difference, bringing new experience and joy into lives that can be far from easy."
