Sonic workers who keep the world’s sounds nice and tidy are urging children to help solve a bad mood that has emerged on the planet.

The Bad Mood tells the story of the workers at ‘Sonic HQ’ who are the sound-makers monitoring all the sounds in the world and keep them orderly.

Things are reaching a pitch on Sunday when the Troupe chamber musicians present an interactive family adventure performance for ages seven upwards as part of the Spitalfields Summer Music Festival in London’s East End.

The sonic workers pick up on a bad mood and have to set off on a quest to locate it and make it right, with the help of the young audience.

Sunday’s performance of dance and movement, with music by Bach, Cage and Ravel, weaves together new poetry from across the centuries with humour, colour and invention.

It runs 60 minutes at Bethnal Green’s Rich Mix arts centre in Bethnal Green Road, 12.30-1.30pm, June 7, tickets £8 children (£2 one accompanying adult, £5 additional adults). Near Shoreditch High Street Overground.

A pre-performance drop-in craft workshop for children and adults is at 12-noon, where they can help create props for the show.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
