Festival

Big Imaginations Children’s Theatre Festival 19 October – 5 November 2017

The Big Imaginations Festival is back and in true Big Imaginations style promises to be bigger, better and even more brilliant than before.

For two weeks in Autumn we will celebrate and showcase the highest quality children and family theatre in venues across the North West.

The Big Imaginations Festival 2017 is already drawing national interest. More information and the full programme for the 2017 Festival will be released soon – watch this space!!


Project Speak Your Mind! (Ages 8-13)

Do you like saying what you think? Then we’d like to hear from you! As part of our festival of brilliant theatre, we’re on a mission to find ten children to see all the shows and tell us what they thought afterwards.

We’re not looking for experts, all you need is enthusiasm, be happy to make some new friends and be ready to learn that reviewing isn’t all about writing something down on paper!

To register your interest in this fantastic opportunity email Holly at holly@z-arts.org
