FREE FAMILY OPEN DAY & MAGICAL MUSIC AND COMEDY PARTY
To celebrate Shakespeare's birthday and to welcome in our Season of Plenty we have two special events on Sunday 21 April.
SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTHDAY OPEN HOUSE
Family friendly workshops and fun
Sunday 21 April, 12 noon – 5pm
An afternoon of family events, games and magical mayhem. Inspired by Shakespeare's greatest magician Prospero, we will play host to bubbling cauldrons, card trickery and magical masterclasses, and mind-bending roaming magicians, including Kevin McMahon from the Edinburgh International Magic Festival.
Join the party in our fascinating exhibition and extraordinary theatre.
THE BIRTHDAY WHIRLIGIG
Music, Magic and Merriment
Sunday 21 April, 7pm
An incredible evening of music and magic.
With music from the aptly named The Magic Numbers and singer-songwriter Johnny Flynn(Viola in Twelfth Night). Prepare to be astounded by mind-blowing magic from Barry and Stuart (BBC1’s The Magicians), Piff the Magic Dragon and ‘the mind-reader-who-can’t-read-minds’ Chris Cox.
Due to unforseen circumstances Bridget Christie is no longer able to compere, but we have the equally funny Lucy Porter to keep everyone in check.
So, come join in the merriment and party like it’s 1564!
Please note: These events have now passed.
