Sharmanka FREE Family Fun Day!

This Saturday (16th March) sees a FREE Family Fun Day that celebrates the openning of our fantastic new exhibition "Gothic Kinetic" by Sharmanka Theatre Company and Jason Taylor's bright and witty "Everyday Objects"!

From 10am - 4pm 20-21 Visual Arts Centre will be buzzing with lots of fun games, activities, workshops and performances. Come on down for opportunities to witness some truly inspirational work as well as the rare chance to work with a professional artist, Jason Taylor.

Every quarter past the hour, The Chancel Gallery in 20-21 will be brought to life, with the theatrical kinetic sculptures made by Sharmanka's talented artists, designers and musicians. The exhibition hasn't been open long, but has created much excitement and a great buzz among visitors so far:

"Absolutely magic!"
"Dark and beautiful, fantastic shadows, and thought provoking"
"very thought provoking, haunting and clever. Fascinating! It's wonderful to have this here to see - interesting how he chooses materials and the questions that spring to mind."
"I saw Gothic Kinetic - spellbinding and inspiring!"
"Gothic Kientic is amazing and awe inspiring. Loved the whole show."

Take part in activities to create you own kinetic tabletop model or have a go in the puppet theatre, after making your own puppets!

Take part in a rare opportunity at 20-21, to work with artist Jason Taylor! Make a clock or build a larger sculpture with a professional artist! Here are some of the things visitors and schools have said about Jason's exhibition:

"Very inventive, made me chuckle"
"I like the Everyday Objects exhibition. Very clever ideas!"

There is a brand new glossy catalogue to accompany "Everyday Objects" at a cost of £2.50. To get yours, while stocks last, please visit the reception desk during your visit.

Indigo Moon Theatre will be performing their truly beautiful shadow puppetry, three times throughout the day. Performances will be at 10.30am, 12.45pm and 2.30pm.
Street Sport will be bringing bike and skate ramps so young people can come along and make healthy and active use of Church Square!
For the first in years, the Moving Toys will be on display for visitors to use! Be careful or you'll become hooked, watching the mechanisms and characters move before your very eyes!
Every visitor will leave with one of our brand new 20-21 balloons! Don't forget to pick yours up before you go!
