Family Weekend: Going On A Journey

Family WeekendWe’re going on a journey this winter and invite you to join us for two fun-filled days of family entertainment, arts, sport activities and delicious food at the University of Warwick.

Begin your journey by meandering through Warwick Arts Centre in search of free workshops, designed to equip you with all you need for a successful expedition around our Family Weekend.

Along the way discover our programme of family theatre, including a modern take on a classic tale in Puss in Boots by Lyngo Theatre, and Bootworks’ The Many Doors of Frank Feelbad. The Family Weekend also sees the opening of the first of our Christmas shows, The Gruffalo’s Child – “the fun, daft and a little scary” (Time Out) show from Tall Stories.

Take a trip upstairs to the Mead Gallery where a sculpture exhibition awaits your arrival, and make your own piece of art in the Creative Space.

Find a map and travel over to the Sports Centre where there will be lots of activities to enjoy, including Christmas themed Zumba sessions and the opportunity to reach dizzying heights on the climbing wall! Keep an eye out for roaming street magician-jesters who will dazzle you with their tricks, and encounter snakes and lizards in Wild Creatures.

Sing your heart out in our Frozen Singalong, back in the cinema by popular demand, or take a well-earned rest in Café Bar. There will be plenty of food and drink available throughout the day to ensure you’re not left hungry as you journey through the programme. Why not try delicious Middle Eastern food in Le Gusta or scrumptious treats from the food market? Or enjoy a spot of Christmas shopping at our Craft market.

We hope to see you there!
