Family Friendly Things To Do


We pride ourselves on being a family friendly venue - both on stage and off – and we’re always delighted to welcome our youngest visitors and their grown-ups to the Theatre, whether to watch a show, take park in a workshop, or simply to have a cuppa while using our free Wi-Fi. Come and visit!

We've compiled a list of great events, online resources, activities, online workshops and creative sessions from both CFT and other organisations that we thought you might enjoy below.

We are a proud member of the Family Arts Standards.
