Your Little Tiny Welcome to the Great Big Whole Wide World

Patrick Sanders (14 July 1976 – 16 January 2017) was a clown doctor, an illustrator, a performer, an artist, an activist and a loving husband.

In 2015, Replay Theatre Company created the world’s first BabyDay; a day celebrating all of our tiniest citizens.  A day that was about hope, about the future and about the family that Northern Ireland could be.  As part of that celebration, Patrick was commissioned to create this exhibition and the beautiful book which it celebrates – which had started life a few years previously for his littlest friend, Aoife Beggs, on the occasion of her glorious birth.

“Your Little Tiny Welcome” is a wonderfully funny and touching introduction to our world for babies, children, parents and, well, everybody really.

Sadly, Patrick left our world far, far too soon but in this work, his extraordinary and unique world view lives on as his legacy, as his wonderful gift to future generations.
