Dir: Greta Gerwig 2022 I 114 mins

To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re Ken.

Eccentric and individualistic, Barbie is exiled from Barbieland because of her imperfections. When her home world is in peril, Barbie returns with the knowledge that what makes her different also makes her stronger.

'Gerwig and Baumbach waste no time in racing through the scenes you might anticipate... Their exuberantly eccentric fairy tale has some of the dark, angst-ridden surrealism of Charlie Kaufman and the meticulous eeriness of Stanley Kubrick' ★★★★★ BBC

'Weird and wonderful, it’s one of the funnest and funniest movies ever made – and is brilliantly spearheaded by actress and producer Margot Robbie, along with writer-director Greta Gerwig' ★★★★★ Evening Standard

'Barbie is one of the most inventive, immaculately crafted and surprising mainstream films in recent memory - a testament to what can be achieved within even the deepest bowels of capitalism' ★★★★★ The Independent

‘Greta Gerwig delivers a new kind of ambitious and giddily entertaining blockbuster that boasts two definitive performances from actors already in their stride. Life after Barbie will simply never be the same again’ ★★★★ Empire

'This is a wonderfully fun watch that somehow manages to simultaneously celebrate and satirise the Barbie brand, its feminism and girliness pairing like gorpcore sandals with a floaty pink skirt' ★★★★ Time Out

'Has a few rough edges, but Gerwig continues to dance to her own beat' ★★★★ Little White Lies

Gerwig’s film - while still fundamentally being a summer comedy adventure about the Barbie toy line – is far from the blunt-force cash grab many of us feared. In fact it’s deeply bizarre, conceptually slippery and often roar-out-loud hilarious. ★★★★ Daily Telegraph

'It’s funny, it’s bright and uplifting, and I think has a lot to say about the modern world – both in terms of feminism and gender equality. Ryan Gosling really goes all-out' ★★★★ Daily Telegraph

'It’s a riotously entertaining candy-coloured feminist fable that manages simultaneously to celebrate, satirise and deconstruct its happy-plastic subject. Audiences will be delighted. Mattel should be ecstatic' ★★★★ The Observer

'Yes, this strange, strange film is a big con, but it’s one you can’t help tipping a pink cowboy hat towards' ★★★★ Irish Times

'It is a film that says "girls who love pink can also be feminists' ★★★★ The Jewish Chronicle

'What a gorgeous and fascinating mishmash this is' ★★★★ The Times

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.

* Free on-site parking
* Café (open all day)

Macbeth: Ralph Fiennes & Indira Varma

150 mins

Tony and BAFTA Award winner Ralph Fiennes and Olivier Award winner Indira Varma star in a brand-new ‘full-voltage visceral’ (★★★★ Daily Telegraph) production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

It’s staged like never before and screened from Dock X, a custom-built theatre space in London. This critically acclaimed staging 'quickens the pulse, then goes for the jugular’ (★★★★ Financial Times). It is unmissable on the big screen.

Macbeth is coming. A couple corrupted by their relentless lust for power have blood on their hands.

Witness the gripping tale of greed, murder, deception and superstition. Once you cross the line, you can never turn back.

This cinematic and ‘beautifully staged’ (★★★★ WhatsOnStage) production brings ‘Shakespeare’s tragedy pulsing into the present day’ (★★★★★ The I).

Directed by Simon Godwin (Antony & Cleopatra, Romeo & Juliet, Hansard) with set and costume design by Frankie Bradshaw (Jerusalem, Blues for an Alabama Sky).
