Book now for Stafford Family Creativity Day

Posted on August 5, 2010

Manchester Camerata Family Creativity Days are great way to keep youngsters amused, whilst encouraging creativity and the exploration of musical posiblilities. 

Sunday 14 November 2010, 10.15 am at The Stafford Gatehouse Theatre.

Places are limited so we recommend you book early – Booking details below.

The aim is for families to spend the day together working creatively on a particular story to produce an afternoon performance.

When each family arrives at 10.30am they are allocated into one of three groups and working on a rotation basis each group experiences three workshops.

The day is most suitable for children between the ages of 7 and 11 although this is very flexible. Children must be accompanied by an adult, who will also have the opportunity to take an active role in the day’s activities! There is a short break for lunch and you can invite non participating family members along to the final performance.


The first workshop is a percussion workshop when everyone can have a go on our principal percussionist’s huge range of percussion, including sleigh bells, gongs, timpani, drums, wind chimes, exotic African and Asian instruments etc

The second workshop is craft based and children and parents make props, scenery, costumes and instruments for the final performance.

The third workshop is with a storyteller and is drama based – everyone gets involved with bringing the script to life and acting out the story.

The three groups come together at the end for a final performance on the stage.

Adults £5.00 Children £3.00.
Places are limited so we recommend you book early. Entry for the final performance at 2:30pm is free, but you’ll need to book a ticket through the box office.
