27th June 2017
Continuing on last year’s success, we're delighted to announce our second year of the Sharing Stories programme summer. Throughout July & August, we've got lots of events for those looking to make the most of the school holidays.
On stage there’s a fantastic family adventure with Hairy Maclary and Friends (Sat 29 to Sun 30 Jul, 2pm). Featuring all the characters from the Lynley Dodds books, expect lots of music, signing and stories of adventure.
For those who like to get creative, we'll be running three, free, drop-in art workshops during July (12th, 19th & 16th, 10am to 12.30pm). Suitable for ages 2-6 and adults, Art on the Go is the chance to make something quick and easy with our resident artist on hand to help, and from the start of July, children and carers can also collect a free Art Backpack from Box Office, packed full of bits and pieces to help children explore the building and university campus.
In the Filmhouse, the much anticipated third instalment of big blockbusters Despicable Me 3 (30 June to 13 Jul) and Cars 3 (14 Jul to 3 Aug) begins. Plus don't miss The Emoji Movie (Fri 4 - Thu 17 Aug), with all tickets £5.50 for screenings before 5pm, we're still the cheapest cinema in town.
Alongside all of this, we've got our usual selection of fun and creative workshops workshops, from art and crafts, drama, dance and storytelling suitable for pre-school age, primary and even opportunities for grown-ups to get involved. Plus the ever popular Story Trails (Tue 1 & Tue 8 Aug) with storyteller Daniel Serridge takes the audience on an another outdoor adventure, visiting some of the University of Stirling’s most interesting spots on campus.
For those in secondary school, Play in a Week (Mon 17 - Fri 21 Jul) also makes a welcome return. Suitable for age 12+ and those interested in acting or what goes on behind the scenes, participants will rehearse, play games, make new friends and put on a performance to be proud of!
