It was the ‘scratch-and-sniff’ cinema that really caught our eye with this release about half-term creative fun for kids – and by osmosis adults… and the community at large – at the Exeter Phoenix this half-term. Here’s what’s on…
Looking for creative ways to keep the kids entertained this half-term? Exeter Phoenix will be holding a jam-packed week of family film, theatre, filmmaking and arty courses for creative kids.
‘Scratch and sniff’ cinema screening
Get ready for fun for all the family and prepare to experience Wallace + Gromit like never before, as Studio 74 hosts a special ‘scratch and sniff’ cinema screening of The Curse Of The Were-Rabbit.
Become a superhero animator
Save the day and star in your own superhero movie, or learn to become a superhero animator with adventurous workshops for heroic 7-15 year olds. Creative 12-16 year olds can experiment with a marbling and bookmaking workshop, or kids aged 5+ join the slime craze with a beginners slime making course.
Blast off into space with Sensory Circus, a theatre show particularly designed for children with ASD or PMLD and stick around for a sensory play session after the show. Plus the venue will also be host to a range of Exetreme Imagination events, including a performance of Paddleboat Theatre Company’s interactive family adventure show, Rustle.
In the run up to Halloween, things are starting to get spooky! Create some monster toy mash-ups, learn to code a Halloween lantern or haunted house game, or even become a zombie for the day!
All this and more takes place in the city-centre arts venue throughout half term.
