Seedlings Early Years Workshops: Scientists in Space 6 - 7 Mar 2020

Explore outer space on a mission to Mars in this interactive drama workshop for little ones aged 2-4 and their grown-ups, led by our Early Years Artist in Residence, Joanna Parkes.

It is the year is 2050 and a group of brave and clever Space Scientists have been asked to go on a mission to Mars to see what they can discover. They will be using their observation skills to explore, investigate and uncover all they can about the potential for life on Mars. What will they find? Come and find out on the next Seedlings adventure.

Using a combination of drama, props, materials and play, children will be encouraged to imagine they are these observant space scientists with a mission to accomplish. So if you’re a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, godparent or carer, come along with a 2 to 4 year old and enjoy imagining together.

Seedlings Workshops

Our Seedlings workshops offer monthly opportunities for very young children to explore their imaginations through playful drama and story. Ideal for getting little ones (and their grown-up!) creating together.
