Theatre projects take the drama out of school holidays

image4As a parent of two young children myself I completely understand the pressure during school holidays to find both child care and activities for little ones, writes Kate Hearn, Heritage and Learning Director, Warts and All Theatre. You are faced with the financial pressure as well as the worry that they may not enjoy themselves, its quite frankly a holiday nightmare!

My two children are very different, one loves performing and being active, whilst the other is incredibly academic and artistic. As a working parent I have, in the past, had to send them to different holiday camps – which makes a time-stressed morning even more chaotic than normal! Add packed lunches, sun-cream and a favourite toy into the mix all before 9am can make heading into work feel like a spa break!

At Warts and All Theatre we have all these bases covered, using our skills and experience we have created two summer holiday projects which should make parents holiday and activity planning feel like a breeze.

We encourage any children and young people wanting to have fun, make new friends and experience exploring theatre for their 1st or 101st time to join us this Summer holiday.

Based at the prestigious and newly restore Delapré Abbey between Monday 20th August– Friday 31st August 2018. We are running three fun filled holiday projects for young people ages 4-18 years old.


Children aged 4-7 years are invited to explore and enjoy the ‘Under the Sea’ and 8-11 year olds are set to go on a ‘Jungle Adventure!’, whilst the 11-18 year olds are going to be heading to the circus for our Musical Theatre themed two day workshop!

All projects include drama, movement, creative writing, storytelling, arts and crafts, prop making and creative play, participants learn new skills and make new friends and the projects culminate with a relaxed sharing at the end of each project.

We are grateful for the generous support from Northamptonshire Community Foundation, who have funded these projects. We are able to offer these holiday projects at a heavily subsidised cost and we also have free bursary places available for residents of Far Cotton and St James.

For more information or to book your child’s place please do get in touch with us! Either by taking a look on our website www.wartsandalltheatre.co.uk  or by emailing/calling hello@wartsandalltheatre.co.uk 07765171549

Make sure you get in quick… each project is limited to 24 places and our project for 4-7 year olds has nearly sold out!

We look forward to seeing you there!

I'm the editor and owner of The NeneQuirer.
