About the Kids Shows

We’re back on the road tackling children’s mental health with our biggest, high-energy kids show tour ever – ‘3 Happy Tricks’ with Martin Heppell.

Through music, storytelling and plenty of laughs, these shows provide primary school aged children and their parents practical strategies how to be happier and more resilient.

You can catch the tour, featuring our most engaging and entertaining presenter, Martin Heppell, around Victoria in the Term 3 school holidays (September) in Frankston, Dandenong, Geelong, Wodonga, Darebin, Bendigo, Wangaratta, Ballarat and Shepparton.
