February half-term activities from ST-ART
A fun-filled February half term is on offer for young people living in North Lincolnshire from Barton to Westcliff in Scunthorpe.
Barton upon Humber based children’s arts charity ST-ART has organised a themed week of activities around the fairy tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears starting on Monday, February 14 and ending on Friday, February 19.
ST-ART project worker Janine Knight explained that all the activities had been put together after she had booked Freehand Theatre to present two performances of their own adaptation of one of the all-time favourite nursery stories.
“The theatre company’s production of “Who’s Been Sitting In My Chair?” features beautiful visual effects, inventive puppetry and original music which together create a play of special magic, especially for young children,” she said.
“So, with the tale of porridge, three bears and three chairs very much in mind it was decided to theme the week’s activities on the Goldilocks story,” she continued.
“There will be the opportunity to make your very own stool using newspaper and rolling techniques which will be so strong you can sit on them, making string puppets from familiar household materials with an emphasis on recycling, creating clay bowls and spoons and bear masks.”
And if you would rather play a game then there is the opportunity to construct your very own porridge launch spoon as well as create your own, very special, bear using felt, beads and buttons.
“As well as all these activities we will be showing two performances of Despicable Me (U) at Ropery Hall on Wednesday, February 16, with the screenings at 2.30pm and 6.30pm and the previous day, for all those going to either one of Freehand Theatre’s performances there is the chance to get in the mood by sampling some freshly made porridge complete with a selection of toppings at The Ropewalk’s Coffee Shop from 10am onwards,” said Janine.
