1pm – 1.45pm | Little People’s Drama – Trip to the Moon

We fly in our spaceships to the moon to see if we can catch a star. We discover the moon looks a bit dirty so we clean it, make it shiny again and discover what it’s made of. We then manage to rescue a baby alien and return it to its grownups who thank us by sharing some moon juice with us.

Ages 2-4
Meeting Room, Theatre Royal


2pm – 3.45pm | Wall-E Film Screening

After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, Wall-E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named Eve. Eve comes to realize that Wall-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, Wall-E chases Eve across the galaxy.

Running Time: 97 minutes
