Easter Family Fun

Season

Please note: this season finished in April 2016

It's fun for all the family this Easter with a cracking double bill of animated adventures from local heroes Aardman, plus an amazing opportunity to learn how to craft your own figures from the experts themselves!

First up is The Curse of The Were-Rabbit (Fri 25 - Thu 31 March), Wallace and Gromit's first big screen outing - and one that scooped them an Oscar® at that. Here our intrepid pair have their plans for the town's Giant Vegetable Competition thoroughly smashed when a giant, destructive rabbit arrives on the scene: can they trap the veg-munching terror before its too late?

Bouncing into the second week of the Easter holiday, we welcome Chicken Run (Fri 1 - Thu 7 April), which sees Rocky The Rooster attempt to lead a group of chickens in a plucky escape from their farm before the evil Mrs Tweedy hatches her fowl plan to turn them all into chicken pies?

Inspired by what you see on screen? Aardman's very own expert model makers will be here for our Make Your Own Model Workshops on Wed 30 March and Wed 6 April (choose from three times: 10:30, 14:00 or 15:30) to help all the family make their own clay models - and animate them!
