5th April: Magic Story Jars with Underwater Adventures

Under the Sea story mixing and crafty fun with magical story jars!

Come and let your kids get hands on and design and create their very own underwater story characters from an array of different craft materials.  From Melanie the friendly mermaid to Marvin the mischievous sea monster, let your child’s imagination flourish with a little help from the story cards found inside our Magical Story Jars.  Take your crafty creation home to prompt even more underwater stories long after your visit!

This activity is suitable for both small and big folks aged between 4 years and 13 years!  Due to the small parts used, we are unable to accommodate craft activities for children aged three and under.  However, we will have plenty of Magical Story Jars for them to use along with story based activity sheets.

**Children must be supervised by adults**

Tickets are free but must be booked in advance, run time: 50 mins.

14th April: Spark, The Goblin Wizard with Dommy B

Spark, The Goblin Wizard by Dommy B
Spark’s magic rhymes can turn anything into anything.
He’ll turn the bogeys up his nose into some pink ribbons and bows.
He’ll make a gorgeous high heeled shoe out of a pile of donkey poo…
However, something terrible begins to happen in the enchanted forest.
Here be wasps, werewolves and wily wickedness!

Maybe not even Spark’s spells will be enough to stop a strange new power threatening the woods and everyone in them… With lyrics, laughs and lots of joining in, poet Dommy B needs your help to save the day!

Dommy B has won Saboteur’s award for Best Spoken Word Artist in UK, New York’s famous Nuyorican Poetry Cafe Slam and UK Superheroes of Slam. He is Glastonbury Festival Poet in Residence. He has performed his poetry for children on national TV on BBC Rhyme Rocket.

Adults and Children must both book tickets for this event.
