February Half Term at Salisbury's Arts venues
Fill your February half term with theatre and creative workshops at Salisbury Playhouse and Salisbury Arts Centre next week.
Theatre performances include The Pixie’s Scarf on Monday 18 February in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse; Lily and the Albatross on Tuesday 19 February in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse; and The Bird Show on Friday 22 February at Salisbury Playhouse.
The Pixie’s Scarf is based on Alison Uttley’s magical tale of the same name and combines beautiful puppetry, charmingly funny characters and magical music, offering audiences their most unforgettable adventure yet! For ages 3+.
Lily and the Albatross is a story about a small family of three, the legend of Great Captain Markham and how they learn to fly in the face of a storm. Suitable for ages 5+.
The Bird Show is a flap-tastic fact-filled family comedy by The Last Baguette. With frolics and foraging, flitting, flying and two unusual feathery friends, this is a story of friendship, courage and adventure. Suitable for ages 4+.
As well as theatre, there’s a choice of workshops at Salisbury Arts Centre over half term. Join the Comic Art Masterclass Workshop on Tuesday 19 February to learn how easy it is to draw. Everyone in the class leaves with a comic strip and an individual caricature. Ideal for children aged 7 to 16.
A Dance in a Day workshop takes place on Thursday 21 February at Salisbury Arts Centre where youngsters aged 8 to 11 can learn the athletic, acrobatic and martial arts inspired repertoire from James Wilton’s performance of Leviathan later that evening. The day will culminate in a sharing for friends and family. Suitable for beginners and those with some dance experience.
Storytime Movers on Friday 22 February at Salisbury Arts Centre is an early years dance session aimed at 2 to 5 year olds, encouraging physical and cognitive development through creative movement. Inspired by the story of the Three Little Pigs, the session will allow children to explore their own imagination.
