Reviews

'The perfect treat to keep the magic of the season alive'UK Theatre Network

'Love, friendship, a magical Winter wonderland and a crab in funky footwear– Miki is magnificent' Muddy Stilettos

‘My children were totally absorbed by Miki from start to finish’Breath of Freash Air Marlow

'Accompanied by a very apt haunting and melodic Sigur Rós-esque soundtrack, which felt like the musical equivalent of the Aurora Borealis, and with a playful juxtaposition of scale and different perspectives' The Henley Standard

'The children in the audience remained engaged and enthused throughout which was a delight to see' Bracknell Family Hub

'The show made a particularly drizzly day in Winter come alive with magic, snow, ice and twinkles!' Families Magazine

'The actors' clever use of voice manipulation kept the audience engaged and made each scene come to life' Maidenhead Advertiser

'There were so many characters and costume changes involved – I actually think they were shapeshifters – it was impressive!' WycMum

'My little ones were transfixed from the moment they sat down, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen them sit so still!' Little Ankle Biters

'My children were totally absorbed by Miki from start to finish and were completely enthralled with the story line' Breath of Fresh Air

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 from the Cafe Bar (including children’s picnic bags).


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.


We love to welcome you and your children here at Norden Farm. However, please be aware that, as we serve hot drinks and food, we do ask that children don’t run in the Café Bar area and are kept close to their adults when on the Beach. Do ask us for children’s books or free colouring sheets if your little ones need some off line distraction.
