Event Highlights

  1. 'A Place for the Winter' show
    3+ yrs
    It’s almost time for the animals to hibernate but Dormouse isn’t too keen. He’s never experienced this time of year before and is just too curious to go to sleep. Hedgehog must help his young friend understand the season and find just the right place to rest, but will he do so before Old Man Winter arrives?
    A 30 min interactive show in the theatre
  2. Santa’s Grotto
    Your pupils can step inside our enchanted grotto to meet Father Christmas and the friendliest elves in town! This magical experience is free with any gallery visit.
