A trip with some huskys, a sparkly adventure, Club Groovy fun – just a taste of Family shows this autumn!

Polar bears, magic beans, a marvellous moustache and a very special Christmas show from the creators of The Gruffalo awaits you at ARC this autumn!

Bringing some freestyle hip hop and plenty of animals with attitude, Bouncing Cats and Boom Boom Pups on Saturday 17 September is a must see show where graffiti artist Mr Dane and spoken word artist Maxwell Golden join together in AnimaLand to bring the fabulous book to life through music, beat box and hip hop for an adventure like no other.

Molly wants to be just like the grown ups. So her mum makes her a special moustache which lets her go anywhere and do anything she likes. But what if being a proper adult isn’t much fun at all? Molly’s Marvellous Moustache on Saturday 8 October has giggles aplenty for kids and grown-ups alike.

Have you heard about the astonishing true story of the polar bear who made friends with a husky? Breaking the Ice on Saturday 22 October is a magical snowy show with great music and a touching story about friendship, and kids can even join in an adventure with Team Polar Bear or Team Husky!

A twist on the children’s classic. Jack and The Beans Talk on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 October is a charming and fun filled show where little ones can shout out and help Jack to avoid the big scary giant at the top of the beanstalk.

It’s dusters and sparkly gloves at the ready when you come to see Mavis Sparkle on Saturday 19 November. Mavis needs your help to get her lovely house spick and span, and with a little bit of magic you can follow her on her dream to see nature’s biggest light show come to life. Expect plenty of cups of tea and Spike the hedgehog joins to help everyone along the way.

Club Groovy (formerly Groovy Babies) are throwing a Poptastic Pyjama Party on Saturday 10 September, a Not-so-Spooky Halloween Ball on Saturday 29 October and their legendary Christmas Party on Saturday 3 December will be glitzier and more festive than ever. As always, dress to impress and get ready to party!

Our Christmas treat The Snow Dragon is the highlight of the season with laughs, sing alongs and plenty of festive fun! Billy the goat is looking forward to the annual visit of the legendary Snow Dragon at New Year, but there are some hungry wolves in the forest and Billy needs lots of help to get home safe and sound before he receives his presents!
