Early Years Workshops: Animals On Parade 28 - 29 Jun 2024

Help the animals get ready for fun and play when the sun finally shines in this creative Early Years workshop full of art making and storytelling with Duffy Mooney-Sheppard.

Rain, rain go away, the animals want to play!

It has been raining and raining and raining all year in the animal village. Stuck at home they are writing letters to each other and making big plans. But soon the sunshine will return and the animals need your help to prepare.

This delightful workshop invites little ones and their grown-ups to enjoy imagining and making together. So if you’re a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, godparent or carer, come along with a 2 to 4 year old to discover, explore and create together in this delightful workshop adventure.
