Wheee! Family Weekend

Join us for a fun-filled weekend of FREE activities and performances. Bring a picnic to eat by the boating lake and enjoy a weekend which includes make and do activities, , performances and general silliness from lots of artists and performances. You can have a cup of tea delivered Morecambe and Wise or James Bond-style by Maison Foo's tea ladies; help Little Cauliflower's bowler-hatted gentleman of National Odour Security England collect smells; laugh at the slapstick comedy of Three Half-Pints; look out for Creature Feature Walkabouts in the park and check out Matti Hemming's incredible stunts in BMX Flatland, reckoned to be breakdancing on a bike! Alongside drumming workshops, singing, aerial acrobatics, Lakeside Youth Theatre performances and lots to make and do, there's also Architects of Air's amazing Luminarium and indoor performances from Replay and Aracaladanza. Lots of surprises and lots to delight the entire family! *please note, Luminarium is £3.50 admission
