With half term just a stone’s throw away, we have a fantastic line up of activities to keep your young ones entertained and fulfilled throughout the break. With family-friendly film screenings, a superb theatre show and a vast selection of craft workshops, we can ensure that there will be something for all minds here at the Maltings this June.
Fri 03 Jun, 2.30pm
We are delighted to welcome London Contemporary Theatre’s re-invention of the timeless classic Stig of the Dump to our stage. Following the touching relationship between boy and caveman, this story proves that friendships can be formed even between the most unusual of pairings.
In conjunction with the performance, we are running a competition offering the chance to win 2 tickets to the show here on Fri 03 Jun. All you have to do is answer the question correctly. Please visit the competition page for more details. Closes Thu 26 May.
If you fancy escaping to a mammal metropolis where animals live and thrive, then Pixar’s new world Zootropolis is the place for you!
Follow Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), who after becoming the first rabbit to join the police force, she quickly learns how tough it is to enforce the law. With bags of determination and persuasive power, she coaxes sly fox Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) to help her solve a mysterious case of a missing mammal.

The fun does not end when half term does however, as we have the fantastic pop-up party Big Dance Bus rolling into Farnham Maltings this summer for an afternoon of moving and shaking.
The Big Dance Festival 2016 kicked off last week with 40,000 dances taking place in a synchronised movement across 43 countries. The bus is now taking the festival out to a number of community festivals across London this summer and we are lucky that they have extended their tour to come to Farnham! Learn more about the launch and the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan’s involvement by reading our article.
With workshops led by our new resident dance company, Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures and Re:Bourne and a mixture of professional and community performances from local talent, it will be an event that the whole family will not want to miss.
