Stamford Arts Centre will be opening for a family friendly fun day during February half term.

The day will include opportunities for families to take part in a wide range of activities from arts and crafts, drumming and drama to singing, face painting and even tours of the arts centre to places that you wouldn’t usually be able to see on a normal day.

The family open day will take place on February 20 from 10.30am and a full list of events and times will be available nearer the time on the Stamford Arts Centre website.

Gareth Whitley, Audience Development and Participation Officer at Stamford Arts Centre said: “The Arts Centre is now fully signed up to the Family Arts Standards.

“During half term the Arts Centre will be showing some exciting live theatre, workshops and films aimed specifically at providing entertainment and great value for money, as well as a chance to inspire creativity.”

New film, Penguins of Madagascar will be screened in the cinema from February 14 to February 17. To tie in with the film, children aged between five and 10 years old will be able to get arty in our penguin crafts workshops on February 16. With two sessions, one at 10.30am and one at 1.30pm, with a cost of £8 per session.

A family of four can also get a set of tickets for £40 to see The National Theatre’s satellite screening of Treasure Island on February 18 at 2pm.
