This action-packed holiday project will blend acting, devising, stage combat and performance techniques inspired by the themes and characters of Suzanne Collin’s ‘The Hunger Games.’ The recently published prequel ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’ will provide a fresh dimension alongside the original trilogy surrounding Katniss and Peeta’s adventures in the arena.
Suitable for ages 10 – 13

The pumpkin patch has been prepped and The Great Hall is banquet ready. It is Harry, Ron and Hermione’s favourite time of year. As the nights draw in, will their mischief be managed or will the cantankerous Filch stop them in their tracks?

“If you go down to the woods today be sure of a big surprise!”
Little Red is looking for her grandma, Jack is on the way to sell his cow, and Rapunzel’s still locked up in her tower – the woods are full of our favourite fairy-tale characters. There even seems to be some magic amongst the trees…
This fantasy filled workshop will use all our favourite stories as inspiration for our role-play. We will sing, dance, act and imagine our way through the fairy-tale forest and follow it all up with a picnic in the woods.
Suitable for ages 3 – 6
In addition, we’ll be enjoying some Halloween Fun with Winnie The Witch and Wilbur the Cat. Feel free to fancy dress for the occasion!
