Big Family Fun Day

On Friday 28 October , come and join us around The Quays for a variety of family orientated activities including:

  • Make your own Wild Time T-shirt – Design your very own wild creation and watch it printed onto a t-shirt for you to take away from your day.
    Book your place here.
  • Puppetry Workshops – create your very own puppet inspired by our wildlife theme! 
  • The Rambert Family Experience – This workshop uses Rambert’s wonderful rich archive as a stimulus for exploring the company’s journey over the past 90 years. As a family you will explore movement and creative tasks inspired by the contents of a magical historical suitcase full of photos, Marie Rambert’s personal possessions, music and props. This fun, creative workshop is suitable for families with children of all ages, especially under 10yrs.

  • Family Festival Wildlife Cruises* – Specially themed cruises around The Quays, each one lasting 50 minutes providing an exciting and exclusive experience for all the family running throughout the day! 

  • Storytelling Tent – make your way to The Lowry’s magical storytelling tent for thirty minutes of enchantment, excitement and adventure. Gather round as our storyteller transports you to faraway lands, distant planets and introduces you to all sorts of creatures though your favourite books.

  • Wild Time On The Prom – Inspired by Marie Rambert’s magical forest, we will be making sparkling mobiles and hangings using leaves, paper cutting and fabrics. Find us on the Galleries Prom from 11am.
