  • Creative workshops, including Flickerpix Ipad Animation, a fun way for kids to turn still images into beautiful and colourful sequences while learning about storytelling through animation.
  • Young people can unleash their creativity and become master builders at the Clayrazy and Lego™ workshops using air-drying clay or Lego™ bricks to build specially designed models in a fun and interactive way.
  • Street Dance workshops promise upbeat, high energy fun, as children get the chance to learn a funky routine to their favourite pop song, while three to eight year olds will enjoy a range of storytelling sessions.
  • There’s also paper marbling workshops for budding artists to create a colourful masterpiece using paints and ink, and drama workshops where children can create, in under two hours, a whistle-stop performance of Peter Pan!
  • The Theatre’s foyer will come alive with face painting, treasure hunts, circus performers, balloon modelers, an eclectic mix of stalls, and lots more.
