Immerse yourselves in The Lost Spells

Come along and be creative with us! We’ve got craft-making activities, songwriting workshops and schools resource packs available for young creatives to get involved in.

Cast your own spell

Cast your own spell about the natural world and add it to our spell tree – just write your spell on the leaves provided and stick it on one of the branches for other people to enjoy!

Free. The spell tree will be in our gallery space on the first floor.

Drop-in craft workshops

Join us this half term to make and decorate your own tree with artist, Ruth Mary Johnson, and explore the beauty of the world around us. Take your tree in with you to watch ‘The Lost Spells’ and then take it home or add it to our growing forest at the Theatre! An ideal treat for children and their grown ups to enjoy time together before one of our shows, or as a standalone activity for those exploring nearby.

This is a free family friendly drop-in workshop which will run at the following times:

Wed 24 May 5pm – 7pm

Sat 27 May 5pm – 7pm

Mon 29 May 12pm – 2pm

Wed 31 May 5pm – 7pm

Thu 1 June 12pm – 2pm & 5pm – 7pm

Sat 3 June 12pm – 2pm & 5pm – 7pm
