Families can come together to explore and engage with our unique theatre beyond the performances on stage through a variety of Family Friendly events and classes.

Events and Workshops

Our season programme includes a range of activities and workshops for families, designed to complement the productions you'll see on stage. Visit our Family Friendly page to find out more about what we have to offer this season.


Family Fun Fridays

Join us with your little ones for monthly storytelling and activity sessions for all the family. In a relaxed and stimulating environment, you'll have fun and meet new friends. Sessions are suitable for 2-5 year olds and accompanying adults.


Little Notes (ages 3 months to 4 years)

Take part in live music, led by classically-trained opera singer and musician Mark Bradbury from Little Notes. He uses his voice and also plays a range of instruments including guitar, flute, piano and ukulele.
