News from the South Holland Centre

With the Easter holidays well and truly on their way, we’re already planning the next big family event here at the South Holland Centre.

The first Saturday in May has traditionally marked a time when families get together for festivities and fun. So we thought we’d run with the theme and create a family day all of our own. And we’re doing it Jungle style! Saturday, May 3 is the date, and it’s a full day of drama, dance, music, craft and cake decorating, aimed at primary school aged children and their grown-ups.

Starting at 10.30am, you’ll get the chance to go wild throughout the whole of the Centre with four rather lush activities including: jungle samba and puppet sessions with Act II Theatre Company in the auditorium; monkeying around in the function hall with Polka Dot Academy in their ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ dance workshop; animal finger puppet making with Janet Strickland in the basement; and animal cupcake decorating with our in-house catering team, Caterwell East Anglia, in the lounge bar.

There’s even a chance to go on safari in a rare outback ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour with the Centre’s own talented technicians! All this is rounded off with a screening of Disney’s The Jungle Book at 4pm.

The idea is for families to feel at home at the Centre and to take part in activities with some of the people and organisations that make it the happy, creative place it is!

We want family groups to feel as welcome as possible – so some of the things you can expect from your visit are help with pushchairs, baby changing facilities, high chairs in the café, booster seats in the theatre and toilet steps in the loos!

We’re also always on the lookout for the best live shows and top family films to programme throughout the year. This Jungle Family Day is another way to get to know us. Whether you are completely new, or a regular, please do come along. Tickets for the whole day are just £5 per person in advance, so swing into the Centre to catch your tickets or book online.
