Family Theatre

Thanks to our partnerships with some of the UK’s most dedicated and creative children’s theatre companies, our family theatre shows are energetic, inclusive and fun. We choose touring productions which approach well-loved stories and completely new characters with enthusiasm, humour and often a song or two.

Shows are performed either in our intimate theatre, where everyone can feel part of the action, or our main auditorium.

Children two and under are admitted free of charge.
