Half-Term Fun at Warwick Arts Centre

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, Peppa Pig, Luna Loves Library Day and free drop-in sessions for all ages are all set for Coventry this February. Warwick Arts Centre are making sure that families are entertained over the half-term break with lots of activities and shows to see.

Based on the much-loved (and multi-award-winning) picture book by author Michael Rosen and illustrator Helen Oxenbury, We're Going On A Bear Hunt (10-13 February) is filled with catchy songs and interactive scenes, with plenty of adventure thrown in. Perfect for those with children aged three and over.

The adventure continues with Peppa’s Cinema Party (Wed 14-Sun 18 February), which celebrates the 20th anniversary of this hugely popular character. First screened on Channel 5 back in 2004, Peppa Pig has gone on to become a worldwide phenomenon, with some 120 countries screening the animated series.  Peppa’s Cinema Party includes 10 never-before-seen Peppa Pig episodes, plus new songs and 11 interactive shorts - with Peppa and her friends leaping from the screen to play, dance and sing in the real world too.

My First Concert: Come To The Circus (Thu 15 February) is a relaxed and interactive concert designed especially for babies, children and their adults. Suitable for ages up to 7-years-old, the half-term special focuses on a circus theme, with tuba player Andy Johnson guesting.

Staying with the circus theme, Cirque: The Greatest Show (Sun 11 February) is a colourful variety spectacular that combines showstopping West End and Broadway hits with breath-taking performances, amazing aerialists and thrilling feats of agility and flair. The cast includes Max Fox (The Jerseys, The Queen’s 90th Concert Celebration), Christian Lee (Britain’s Got Talent finalist) and Ashley Lloyd (Whistle Down The Wind, Saturday Night Fever, Dreamgirls).
