So we mentioned here that Alex Levene would be delivering some VERY exciting news about an event coming up in the Summer at The Kiosk....well, if you missed him at Storytime, I hope you are sitting comfortably now for some rather marvelous news. Kiosk at the Park is delighted to announce that The Oxford Playhouse will be visiting Russell Park on the 5th August with their Pop-Up Theatre, a travelling tent described as a theatrical discovery space - exciting for everyone!
Inside, the tent will be a haven of creativity - stuffed with activities for families, young children as well as older children and adults.
For the under-sixes there will be performances of Teatime, a wonderfully silly celebration of mealtimes in stories, song, music and dance; all inspired by games played around the kitchen table.
There will also be workshops, games, craft and other activities for families to join in with.
For older children and adults, there will be a cryptic treasure hunt to puzzle over, as well as audio plays, poetry and many digital experiences.
And if the excitement of all that gets too much, you can kick back for a bit in the chill-out area with books to curl up with and read, and cosy armchairs to relax in. Reviving drinks and snacks will be on hand at the Kiosk.
If you'd like to find out more, you can see their blog describing their 2012 Pop Up Theatre tour here.
Now, how brilliant does that sound? Pretty darn brilliant is what we think. Pop the 5th August down in your diary/phone/Summer Plans List, right now.
You have our solemn permission to do a celebratory dance of excitement now.
