Families & Children

Here at Lakeside Arts we pride ourselves on bringing a great selection of shows for children, of all ages and their families. All year round you’ll find theatre and dance shows, talks, workshops and more.

You’ll find with many of our family shows this is a workshop that runs alongside the children’s show. These workshops will be craft-based, movement-based or theatrical and all full of fun and creativity. Make the perfect day out, with a show, a workshop and a spot of lunch in our café.

School holiday activities  

Throughout the school holidays, we run a range of creative workshops. You can pick and choose which will suit your little ones the best. 

You’ll also find our Summer Schools are a great way to spend a week for those creatively-minded kids. Previous Summer Schools have included Make a Play in a Week, this Summer we have two Carnival-themed weeks.
