Barton children’s charity

By admin |

Barton children’s charity, ST-ART, has put together a series of events for the Easter holidays.

The programme gets under way on Tuesday, April 6, with the Theatre of Widdershins transporting Ropery Hall into the magical land of Arabian Nights with lavish colours and textures and an original soundtrack.

Using puppets, props and storytelling, Sheherazade, the greatest of all storytellers presents three fabulous tales from her Arabian Nights: a tale from the desert, a tale from the bed of the ocean and a tale straight from the donkey’s mouth.

Suitable for children aged four years and over and their families, the performance begins at 2pm and costs £3 for adults and £2 for children under 16.

The following day, April 7, Ropery Hall stages two performances, at 2.30pm and 6.30pm, of Fantastic Mr Fox (PG).  The story tells of one Mr Fox and his wild ways of hen heckling, turkey taking and cider sipping adventures until the day comes when he has to put his wild days behind him and do what fathers do best – be responsible.

Entry for either performance is £3 for adults and £1 for under 16s.

Thursday, April 8, sees Ropewalk studio artist Kirsty Champ leading a workshop on Origami Easter baskets at the Viking Resource Centre on Fairfield Drive between 2pm and 4pm while the following day ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight will be making woven Easter Baskets at The Ropewalk.

The following Wednesday, April 14, Tell Tale Hearts will be presenting Space Hoppers at Ropery Hall in two interactive productions, starting at 11am and 2pm, combining performance, live music and poetry to create a magical experience for children aged between three and seven years and their families.

Entry costs £3 for adults and £2 for under 16s.
