We’re half way through the summer holidays and if you’re still looking for fun things to keep the kids entertained, look no further.

Summer Activities 16

There’s still so much more summer fun to be had, we have a range of activates for all interests. From learning to paint, playing with clay or learning how to become an animator.

We’ve had a great start with kids hearing teddy bear tales, dancing like dinosaurs and learning how to draw.

Dance like a dinosaur

Children learnt a whole range of dances in the Dance like a Dinosaur workshop at North Weald Village Hall Tuesday 26 July 2016. Based on Jane Clarke and Lee Wildish’s book Dance Together Dinosaurs the kids got to try their claws at the tango, ballet, breaking dancing, disco and samba.  They also made some fang-tastic dinosaur masks and performed a small routine for their parents.

Frogs, snails and teddy bear tales

Theydon Bois Village Hall was filled to the brim with bears on Wednesday 28 July 2016 for Freehand Theatre’s performance of their latest show, Frogs, Snails and Teddy Bear Tales.  Bear was having trouble sleeping with all the excitement of his birthday the next day and needed the audience and their teddy bears to join in as they whooshed through the changing seasons.

Audience members said:

Great fun, my 3 year old giggled through it all as did my 7 year old and me!’

‘Really wonderful show, very funny and kids were really entertained.’

‘Very funny and entertaining for all ages, thoroughly enjoyed it.’
