Family Sunday #4

Family Sunday #4

Our monthly Family Sundays include FREE activities and incredible bookable workshops.

This month join Paddleboat Theatre for their wonderful open air production of "Rustle" - free at 1pm with admission fee. PaddleBoat Theatre present an Open-Air Theatrical Adventure:


Imagine that you’re far from home,

Playing in the woods all on your own

And all is still and calm and clear -

But what’s that rustle you can hear?

Is it the wind blowing through the trees?

Is it the sound of falling leaves?

Or is the rustle that you hear

The sound of something drawing near…

Plus ... a poetry workshop at 11am (£5) and a drama workshop at 2.30pm (£5). Please book to avoid disappointment! Visit our website and click on buy tickets to book.

More information on the workshops:

Poetry – Taking inspiration from your surroundings, PaddleBoat author Stuart Cottrell leads an expedition into the magical world of words. We’ll explore what makes a great poem, and ask why so many poems and songs have been inspired by the outdoors. You’ll have the chance to write your own poem or song. – 1hr, ages 7+

2:30pm - 3:30pm DRAMA WORKSHOP
Imagine life in a forest – what would it be like? What might you discover? And what sort of person might you be? Join PaddleBoat Theatre Company as we use our bodies, voices and our imaginations to create a magical woodland. We’ll play with mime, object play and storytelling techniques - 1hr, ages 4+

Free activites include arty fun and garden trails.

Children must not be left without an adult.
