No other art form can unite and inspire people like theatre does and we look forward to welcoming a new generation of theatregoers to our member venues across the city.”
Kids Week also has a fantastic range of free activities and events which includes everything from storytelling and backstage tours to choreography and stage combat workshops. The full activity listings can be found at KidsWeek.co.uk
