Jump In! Make a Play in 3 Days

Led by Troublemaker Theatre Company

Create a play from scratch in just three days!

Explore different elements of theatre such as acting and script writing before performing your masterpiece at the end of the course.

This year's theme is The Plastic, Fur and Digital Meltdown

It’s games vs. toys, the battle for supremacy has begun. Come and help create this show from scratch. With nothing but a starting idea and a title you will devise a performance to entertain and amuse, with the guidance of professional theatre practitioners.

Could Barbie beat Mario in a celebrity wrestling match? If Paddington was stuck in the world of Minecraft would everything be made of marmalade sandwiches? Can Action-man escape from the Snakes and Ladders prison? The ideas are up to you.

Mon 9 – Wed 11 Apr
10am – 4pm (Wed 5pm)
£90 (£80 Advantage Card)

Suitable for ages 10+ years.

The Maidenhead Beach

The ever popular Maidenhead Beach is back, all summer long – this year inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa.

The Beach has been designed and handmade by Norden Farm with the help of the community.

It’s free to play on every day with beachside tables available for snacks and lunch, including children’s picnic bags from the Café Bar.


Peel yourself off the beach and get creative with your little ones in our daily Beach Craft sessions:

Arts and Crafts (45 mins) | £5 per child Monday – Saturday 10.30am

Or sit back and relax with them in the story den for our Storytelling sessions:

Storytelling (20 mins) | £2 per person Monday – Saturday 1.30pm and 3.30pm


For maximum chill out, explore the indoor sensory space in our Gallery. It is designed for children with SEND and features work from local schools. Get involved with decorating the floor and making kites.


All of this and a full programme of family films and live events, the Goan Beach is the perfect place to pitch up this Summer
