There’s lots of new family fun to be had at Chichester Festival Theatre this October half term.

For half term, CFT’s got a comedy club for all the family, autumn crafts fromThe Creation Station Chichester as well as a chance to go behind the scenes and learn oodles of fun facts in our first family friendly backstage tour.

Check out the extended free family spaces popping up on Saturday mornings (as well as usual on Thursdays) all in arms-reach of the Café on the Park. Our interactive foyer exhibition First Spark is also available to check out for free when you visit us - it's located opposite the Box Office in the Festival Theatre foyer. And after half term, we'll continue our fun new sessions for little ones on Wednesdays with Mini Makers & Shakers.

If you're the type to think even further ahead... We've got a stockingful of delights for you and all your loved ones this Christmas! Wonders await at CFT.

Unfortunately we have had to postpone our Youth Choir sessions this half term, we hope to reschedule the event to a later date and will add the details to our website when we have them.
