Children & Families

Wheee! FREE Family Weekend

The Wheee! family weekend is always special and this year is no exception. Look out for amazingly athletic dance theatre from Zoielogic in Ride; super talented Humanhood performing Nomadis (dance); hilarious street theatre with the mischievous Person Birds from Maison Foo; a simple story about the delights of trying something unexpected in A Bird In The Hand's Special Delivery; fun interactions with the wonderful Wheeze! musical machine; atmospheric storytelling in Travelling Treasury with Highly Sprung; and the inimitable Nitwit & Grump promising comedy chaos!

Completing the picture the Luminarium will be open 11am-5.15pm, there will be things to make and do in the Arts and Crafts Village (open noon-5pm each day), stories from Peter Chand, and drumming workshops from Mark Evans without whom it simply wouldn’t feel like a Wheee! weekend.
