28 Nov - 22 Dec

Family theatre performances, Christmas movie screenings, festive parties and opportunities to work up a sweat, or even make a splash, are some of the fun-filled events that feature within our Winter Programme.

The programme is open to all, with a mixture of free, low-cost and tiered price points where people attending can pay what they can, in recognition of the financial challenges faced by many this winter.

Our venues will also provide a warm welcome for anyone who is looking to avoid some of the stresses that can come with the festive period, providing high-quality spaces where you can do as much, or as little, as you want.

View the full programme of events within the brochure below.
