Children’s half-term treat at Ropery Hall
A children’s theatre half-term treat is in store next month at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall as Leeds based LittleMighty theatre company bring its production, Horace and the Yeti to the Maltkiln Road venue.
Starring Jack Dean, who also wrote the play, and Amie George, Horace and the Yeti is an eco-adventure for young people and their families aged three years and up featuring an original music score and ripping yarns.
There are two performances of the play on Wednesday, February 14, starting at 11am and 2pm with tickets costing £8 for adults and £5 for children.
In conjunction with the performance, ST-ART co-ordinator Janine will be making a yeti “quick-make” activity before each of the two showings starting at 10am and 1pm that costs £1 for each child although Janine adds that if young people do not have the time there will be some kits available to take home.
The previous day Grimsby based artist Nicky Dillerstone will be leading a separate sewing taster session at The Ropewalk for 10 to 16 year olds running from 10am to 3pm.
Young people will be able to choose from making a textile keyring or a tote bag. Expert tuition and guidance will be available for the young people throughout the day so they will be able to go home with a finished project.
The cost is £5 for the day and participants are asked to bring a packed lunch. Places are limited so booking is essential by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01652 660380
