Seedlings Workshops: Suzy Deezy’s Feeling Sneezy 6 - 7 Dec 2019

Led by our Early Years Artist in Residence, Joanna Parkes, this early years drama workshop will bring little ones aged 2-4 and their grown-ups together to help a friend in need.

Poor Suzy has a bad cold. She can’t stop sneezing and is feeling terrible but she has some friends coming round and a party to plan. She keeps forgetting what she has to do and is in quite a panic. Who is going to make the biscuits, put up the decorations, and lay the table? She really needs some help!

Do you know anyone who can help poor Suzy? Any 2 to 4 year olds and their grown-ups are welcome to come along and see if they can help Suzy Deezy get the party ready.

Combining drama, story, play and props, this interactive drama workshop invites little ones and their grown-ups to enjoy imagining together. So if you’re a parent, grandparent, uncle, aunty, godparent or carer, come along with a 2 to 4 year old and join in the fun.

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.
