October half-term events for the kids!
The time of pumpkins, dressing up and trick-or-treating is on its way as October half-term approaches! Here at the Subscription Rooms we have three fantastic family events lined up in the week (and we really do mean fantastic) including theatre, animal handling and science.
Tall Stories present The Snow Dragon
Thursday 26th October at 1pm & 4pm
Tall Stories, the company that brought you ‘The Gruffalo’ bring their theatrical story of The Snow Dragon. Billy has everything a young goat could need – and more besides. On New Year’s Eve, Billy is looking forward to the annual visit of the legendary Snow Dragon, who will bring him even more goodies…
But when Billy bumps into some hungry wolves in the forest, New Year’s Day seems a long way off. How will Billy escape? And has he been naughty or nice?
Toe-tapping songs and lots of laughs for everyone aged 3 and up.
Zoolab present Jeepers Creatures!
Friday 27th October at 11am
Join ZooLab for a fantastic Halloween spell party! Our hapless witch Georgie has been asked to attend a prestigious Witches Ball. There is only one problem - our witch is not particularly good at casting spells! Everyone will need to work together in order to make sure everything goes smoothly. What could possibly go wrong? Surely we wouldn’t conjure up a whole host of creepy crawlies?!
Children ages 4-12
Sibling discounts & free adult tickets available (special offers must be purchased via the Box Office).
