Keep the little ones entertained and embrace an imaginative and artistic family festival full of creativity and fun at Sherman Cymru this April.
The Sherman Cymru Family Festival ensures that kids are kept happy whilst parents are able to take a bit of break whilst indulge in the numerous inventive and creative activities and events taking place from Wed 24 Apr-Fri 5 May.
Some of the best children’s theatre producers have been invited to Sherman Cymru to put on a wide range of exciting plays throughout the festival, and this includes the award-winning Welsh production companies Theatre Iolo and Theatre Hullabaloo and their show Luna (Fri 3-Sun 5 May) suitable for toddlers and two plays under the title Savage Children (Tue 30 Apr and Wed 1 May) in partnership with Bristol Old Vic and Bath’s Egg for the ones a little older to enjoy.
Alongside these imaginative shows, this family festival offers the chance to attend a baby rave –that’s right, a rave for babies – which will stimulate the senses and let mums dad and toddles shake a tail feather or two. After huge success across the UK since its launch in 2005, the Baby Rave Experience, ideal for children aged 0-4, allows parents and toddlers the opportunity to explore movement and rhythm whilst having a fun and interactive time. There’ll be DJs, lots of stimulating visuals and no doubt plenty of shots of milk at the bar.
Sherman Cymru and Theatre Iolo are also teaming up to conduct inspiring discussions and professional development workshops during the festival, and Pirates Of The Carabina will also be showcasing their exhilarating circus performance Flown (Sat 27-Sun 28 Apr). Expect an eclectic show of entertainment sure to impress both children and adults.
Along with all of the fun there is to have in the theatres, Sherman Cymru are also providing a number of games, colouring, music and books in the foyer, as well as a refreshment cafe-bar. Stimulate and entertain your children with a world of theatrical entertainment for parents and children alike to enjoy.
