Shrek The Musical has begun
The wait is finally over and our Easter production Shrek The Musical started this week. The entire team have been working endlessly over the last few months to bring such a fantastic production to all audiences and it is great to see it all come to life in sold out shows.
The show runs until Mon 18 April with limited seats available.

Next year’s Easter production
After a successful start to Shrek The Musical, we are so excited to announce that Kinky Boots is our next Easter production in 2023!
Embrace some diversity with a sassy, feel-good musical based on the Tony award-winning show that was a Broadway sensation.
Tickets are now on sale for Kinky Boots running from Tue 11 – Sun 16 April 2023, so book your favourite seats here.

Shrek set build with students
Collaborating with Activate Learning, Level 2 Furniture students Alex Bishop, Jonathan Kruip and Ellis Stacey were able to support our Head Scenic Carpenter, Darren Gould on building the set for Shrek The Musical. Make sure to look out for their amazing work during the production this week.

Successful Easter workshops
Nearly 200 people took part in our Easter family programme with workshops from sock puppet making, samba drumming, printmaking, and collage and paint play. Our Learning and Participation team loved meeting you, seeing your beautiful creations and talking to you about what you would like us to run in future family programmes. Look out for more family fun in the summer holidays.
