Animals!

There are no scheduled instances of Animals!. You can view similar events below.

Presented by By Den and Signals.

Everyone’s here for the AGM – the Animals’ General Meeting – but as usual one species hasn’t turned up, and it’s the species which has been causing all the trouble… The humans.

Buzzard, Rabbit and Porpoise know that something’s got to be done, but they need you to grab your species ID badge, step into the paws of your favourite creatures and help the humans work out how to be better neighbours to all the other animals. Whatever happens, it’s going to be wild!

Fun, interactive and featuring original songs, Animals! is an empowering and uplifting performance about animals, humans and nature. It celebrates the amazing wildlife around us and makes big things feel possible.

This event is part of Quest Family Fest 2023. Join us to navigate your way through 2 weeks of creative adventures.

Suitable for ages 6+ years.

Baby Signing

Led by Funky Monkeys

Have you ever wondered what your baby is thinking or feeling? Would it help if they could communicate those thoughts and feelings to you?

Sign & Rhyme teaches parents/carers and their little ones, simple sign language that enables them to communicate before speech takes over. Just like waving and clapping, your baby can learn to tell you when they’re hungry, in pain or just that they’ve seen a dog! This is empowering to them and hugely rewarding for you! In most cases babies who sign learn to talk sooner than their non-signing peers.

Signs are used in class, like actions, to accompany songs and nursery rhymes and with an array of props, puppets, instruments and the use of disco lights, bubbles and parachutes to enhance the sensory experience and make learning more fun.

There's also:
* Free on-site parking
* Café (open all day)
* Baby changing facilities

Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers all welcome with their babies under 18 months

Bring Baby Choir

Singing is a great way to relieve stress and promote well-being.

Meet new people and take some time for you in this new acappella choir for mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their babies!

It is a baby friendly class, created especially so you can bring the baby you care for. Grown ups are in a semi circle (with room for your buggy next to you) and babies can sit, crawl or play on the blanket in front of you.

These uplifting classes are led by conductor/composer (and mum) Marta Radwan. There's no auditions, no singing experience is needed and you don't need to have a 'good voice' - just an openness to have a go! You'll be sure to know the songs and there will even be some which include your little one.

There's also:
* Free on-site parking
* Café (open all day)
* Baby changing facilities

Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers all welcome with their babies under 18 months

Fri 12 Jan - 9 Feb (5 weeks)
Fri 23 Feb - 22 Mar (5 weeks)
Drop in sessions Fri 19 Apr and 26 Apr
