Half Term at The Atkinson

Half Term at The Atkinson

Half term is sneaking up on us fast and we know how difficult it is to keep the little ones engaged. Which is why from 12 – 19 February, we have something for all ages; even Mum and Dad. So join us for a range of facilities that families can enjoy at their leisure!

Take A Trip Into The Woods…
Woodland Tales with Granddad

Thursday 17 February 2022
1:00pm & 3:30pm
Age guidelines: Age 3+

Something is happening in the woods, voices can be heard, and a strange metallic smell fills the air. Machines are gathering at the woods edge and a mysterious call is heard across the valley.

Laura the ladybird, Jeffrey the spider, Brett the Woodlouse and Willoughby the Woodpecker are worried. Velda the Vixen knows there’s only one person who can help them – Granddad.

But is there enough time? Can they save the wood? And will the mysterious stranger help?

Featuring a cast of extraordinary puppets, this uproarious family show not only entertains, but has an important and timely environmental message to share.

The show pays homage to some of the greatest crooners of all time, with a splendiferous injection of Britishness featuring humour, tap dance, and some of the most quintessential songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Matt Monro, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin.

Expect some Lady is a Tramp, L.O.V.E, When You’re Smiling, Mack the Knife and many more…Pip Pip!
