Toddler Takeover: Come Rain, Come Shine (SOLD OUT)



Get hands-on in our special fun-packed day of colourful activities for tiny explorers, all about the wonderful world of weather!

Experiment with feathers and flags in our wind machine, experience real clouds and make your own from wool in Cloud Lab and join Ursa and Leo for The Missing Puddle during storytime. You can also take a trip to the stars in our Space Explorers and Rocketship Adventures Planetarium show, especially designed for littles.


‘Snigel and Friends’ in the Studio – a show for babies aged 0-12 months

At this event we also have a special treat for our youngest visitors, with this wonderful new show, developed specially for the under 1s and their adults. Join Snigel (leading UK disabled dancer Caroline Bowditch, Falling in Love with Frida), the inquisitive snail, in a cosy home underneath the leafy canopy; a colourful and sensory world where Snigel’s insect friends – brought to life by dancers Welly O’Brien and performer and musician Zac Scott – come to visit. They dance, play, sing and make music in the undergrowth while uncovering secret treasures. Show times: 11am, 1.15pm and 3.15pm (lasts around 40 minutes). 

'Snigel and Friends' is part of this year's Mayfest, Bristol's unique international festival of contemporary theatre, which runs from the 10 to 20 May 2018.
