FREE Family Day on offer this March

On Saturday 16 March, Derby Theatre will host a Family Day, a day of fun and FREE arts-related activities and workshops, an event which also coincides with Disability Access Day 2019.

The Family Day is part of Derby Theatre’s ongoing mission to provide opportunities for, and to engage with, the communities it serves and a great opportunity to have fun! The day will include: a Jungle Book-related dance workshop, an Artcore clay workshop, a stage combat workshop and a drama workshop led by Deafinitely Theatre, plus drop-in activities including: face painting, dressing up corner, chill-out zone and craft/colouring activities…all on offer for FREE.

As part of the day, we are also excited to announce that our Deaf-Friendly Youth Theatre will present a superhero-inspired short performance, a presentation that will include speech and BSL interpretation and integration. The performance will be shown at 10.15 am and 11.15am

All of the workshops will have a BSL interpreter present. Due to the content and suitability of the workshops, they are only available for the following ages: Jungle Book-related dance, on from 10am until 11am (for ages 8 – 11); Artcore clay workshop, on from 10am until 1.30pm (open to all ages); Stage Combat: Selling a Fight, on from 12pm until 1pm (for ages 11 – 18) and Drama Workshop with Paula Garfield from Deafinitely Theatre, on from 1.45pm until 3.45pm (for ages 8 – 14).
