Norwich Theatre’s take part summer term has just been announced. It includes a fabulous array of workshops and sessions to get creative, join a community, share your thoughts on stage and even activities to keep the children occupied during the Easter holidays! 

De-stress after work with Norwich Theatre’s Unwind series. Unwind with Movement (8 Jun – 6 Jul) offers a moment of calm with nourishing, restorative and accessible practice to connect the mind and body. Unwind with Words (8 Jun – 6 Jul) uses writing to help clear the mind, explore your experiences and express yourself. Experiment with mark-making and drawing techniques inspired by theatrical history with Unwind with Art (4 May – 1 Jun). 

Learn to bring children’s books to life with Family Story Makers (15 May – 24 July) at Norwich Theatre! You will use physical theatre, movement and creative play to create a magical world with your child. For a playful session with your little one why not try Sing, Dance, Play (21 Apr – 23 Jun). These sessions will see you play with instruments and unconventional multi-sensory props, helping your little one to explore moving, dancing and playing.  

Come and join a creative community! Writing through Motherhood (3 – 31 May) provides a space for mothers at any stage in their journey to talk and work on an anthology of words and poems inspired by their experiences. The Creative Café (Second and fourth Monday of each month May – Jul) is a hub for the over 65s to meet and get creative over tea and cake. Each month will have a different focus inspired by the history of the theatre and the region. 

Several new workshops have been added to the theatre’s Creative Matters year-long season exploring Climate Stories. Next Act: Climate Stories Scratch Night with Meg Watts and Guests (6 Jun) is your chance to get on stage and share your creative responses to the climate crisis. If a discussion is more your thing, Theatre Conversations (6 Apr – 6 Jul), where you can explore the role of theatre and creativity in the climate crisis, might be for you. Theatre Makers: Time to Act (26 Apr – 17 Jul) explores how creativity can be a voice for change. This is an exciting opportunity for young people to come together to create an empowering vision of the future and inspire people to take action on climate. 

Norwich Theatre has the Easter Holidays all wrapped up! Come and explore how creativity can be used to help the climate between 11 – 14 Apr. With fun that will make you rethink, recycle and reimagine a new world of possibilities. Bookable sessions start from just £5 per child, with free adult spaces in sessions for the whole family. Experiment with mud painting with Grass Roots – Mud Flags (14 Apr), try to make your own story to save the world in Story for our Planet (11 Apr), or why not go on a journey of imagination and sensory play in Musical Explorers for SEND (13 Apr).
