Kick-start the new year by exploring the wonderful, magical and unique aspects of Japanese culture. We know how much families loved our first Japan box (which focused on theatre, karate and anime) so Ellen, Keris, Andy and Kanae have worked together to bring our community a brand new Japan box (which focuses on magic folklore and popular culture- street food, sushi and games).

Our event is a combination of the themes and activities of both the boxes so come along and embrace your inner Ninja.

We’ve got lots of activities including:

Demon toppling target game for Setsubun (a traditional celebration for February with our own twist!)

Great Wave group art using a 3D Pen with Andy from 3D Primo

Make your own Furoshiki wrap and Daruma doll

DIY Origami

All of our events have a SENDCO on staff and a sensory room if you need support.

Both of our Japan Boxes can be purchased as a combined ticket for an awesome adventure to take home! In both, 10 hours of original screen-free unplugged fun await!

Wrap up for a cosy fireside fun Victorian style this Christmas! The Victorians were a ground- breaking group, with plenty of influencers (like Charles Dickens and Victoria and Albert) who formed so many of our Christmas traditions today. The Victorians were also incredibly inventive, creating photography, early animation and more. Our 2 hour session will dip into the Victorian Era with… 

▶️Victorian Parlour games▶️

👻Victorian ghost scenes (think A Christmas Carol)👻

🎄Baubles and Cards (of course Victorian)🎄

📷We’ll also have a special guest: Little Vintage Photography, who will be taking some Victorian Portrait pictures for you using a camera she built to replicate the old-school process!📷
