Day 6 – Thursday, 15 March
Boppin’ Bunnies is an interactive music class for 0–5 years and their parents. All our National Award-wining Boppin’ Bunnies Classes are led by professional musicians who play live to the children and adults each week on our speciality instruments. Boppin’ Bunnies 35-minute classes are an all inclusive, interactive experience so parents, carers, children and younger siblings can all enjoy music making together and it can become a weekly shared activity.
We give the adults instruments alongside the children and encourage grown ups to play, dance, and interact with their little ones throughout the session. We get older children assisting their younger brother and sisters throughout the class so everyone feels involved. There’s no sitting back and watching, so please come ready to sing your heart out, tickle your little ones and make them laugh, jump up on your feet and swing them round, lie down on the mats with them and participate fully in our high energy sessions!
If you love graceful surroundings, with smooth jazz in the background, delicious sandwiches, tea, and cakes aplenty, the Tea Dance is for you. Put a spring in your step. All welcome to come along and enjoy yourself at this very special afternoon of music and dance.
2:00-5:00pm £3 on the door
Bubbles and Slime – a Messy Science Workshop
Come and get hands-on with some messy science; make giant bubbles, create gunky slime and wrestle with some weirdly behaving custard. Sally Collins will lead you through the process, and explain the scientific properties that make them such fun. Sally is an educator specialising in science and museum learning. She is also studying for a PhD in Palaeontology so she’s always up for a chat about fossils.
Places are limited please book in advance – www.nxgtrust.org and click on the Eventbrite button on the right hand side of the home page.
Speed Christianity: 2000 Years in Sixty Minutes
A laugh-a-century ride through the story of Christianity. You know how it starts, with Jesus and tax collectors and Samaritans. You know how it ends (so far), with food banks, Jacob Rees-Mogg and the Greggs sausage roll scandal. How did we get from there to here? Catch up on the details of that hazy 2,000-year period in between with local author Stephen Tomkins. May contain prophetic geese and grass-eating monks.
What is the German word for “Kindergarten”? Why is there still Katie Hopkins? Where do you go to, my lovely? These are just three of the questions that have not made it through the rigorous selection process for the Festival Quiz Night. Whether you have the towering intellect of Stephen Hawking or the blustering ignorance of that well-known stable genius, come and gently exercise your knowledge core with some brain Pilates.
8:30-11:00pm £6 (£4)
(Doors open at 8:00pm)
