In addition to making family theatre, we design and deliver many other kinds of creative activities for families to enjoy together. Here's just a selection. We are very open to creating bespoke family arts offers to fit in with an event's theme.
Interactive Outdoor Trails
Not only do most of our family theatre shows work outdoors, we also design outdoor interactive trails, which are then animated with playful walkabout characters.
We can install a stylish, robust outdoor art gallery with up to 12 stations. Families respond to open-ended prompts at each station to help them enjoy the art together. We can theme the art collection in response to an event if required.
This trail is animated by high-energy, colourful and eccentric walkabout characters Agents Kahlo and Dali from The Company of International Artists.
We can build a password-decoding element into the trail if required. The password unlocks a short celebratory film featuring the characters Agents Kahlo and Dali.
A quirky, hand-made Halloween themed trail encouraging imaginative play and and puzzle-solving.
This trail is animated by walkabout characters Gourdon and Melonie, two activist pumpkins who's main aim in life is to ensure pumpkings aren't thrown in bins.
This trail has been made to the same quirky, handmade standards as the Halloween trail but due to pandemic regulations changing at an inconvenient time, we've not had a chance to take it out yet! It is inspired by the 12 days of Christmas and has, yes, 12 stations!
This trail is animated by walkabout characters Holly and Noel, a pair of novice event planners who have, let's be honest, bitten off more than they can chew but are determined to see it through.
Family Art Workshops
These are just a taster. We are able to devise bespoke workshops to reflect a specific event's theme. Our workshops are a blend of drama, music, storytelling, dance and arts & crafts.
To help families through the summer of 2020, we posted PlaySparks every week here and on our social media.
PlaySparks are ideas for imaginative and active play and require no special creative resources.
PlaySparks include ideas suitable for preschool children up to children aged around 12 years.
