About

An evocative live music and animation show

Award-winning composer and experimental accordionist Martin Green has brought together a supergroup of UK songwriters, musicians and artists – and the results are stunning.

Inspired by Green’s 90-year-old grandmother’s stories of fleeing Europe in the 1930s, this extraordinary live music and animation event tells captivating tales of travel across the world.

Performed live by a world-class line-up including Becky Unthank from The Unthanks, Mogwai's Dominic Aitchison, and extraordinary singer-songwriter Adam Holmes, Flit is more than just a gig. The enchanting vocals and intricately layered sounds, set within a world of breathtaking stop-motion animation, create an intimate and visually rich production.
