The Dukes Half Term Family Fiesta

There’s a feast of family entertainment on offer for the half term holiday at The Dukes.

Three days of family theatre begins on October 30 when Pitschi: The Kitten With Dreams returns at 11.30am and 2pm.

Pitschi is a little Swiss kitten who lives with her family on a farm but dreams of being anything else but a cat.

Theatre Fideri Fidera also present Oskar’s Amazing Adventure on October 31 at 11.30am and 2pm.

This heartwarming, humorous play uses storytelling, puppetry, music, song and magic to tell the tale of a puppy’s search for friendship in the Alps.

Both these shows are recommended for children aged 2 plus.

The family shows conclude with Tales Of Birbal recommended for children aged 6 plus on November 1 at 11am and 1.30pm.

Travelling storytellers Mashi and Bhanji bring famous tales alive with humour, puppets, music and the occasional fake beard.

All tickets for family theatre are £6.80 and the shows take place in The Dukes gallery. A lunch deal can be added to any of these events priced £4 for a child and £6 for adults.

Family films lined up at The Dukes cinema for half term are Hocus Pocus(PG) on October 28 and Aladdin(U) on November 3 and 4. Both begin at 1.30pm and all tickets are £2.50. From 12pm before the screenings, there are craft drop-in sessions free to those watching the films.
