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.

Core is a brand-new specialist commission from Big Imaginations for ages 8-13 and their families, premiering at the 20174 festival.  Core combines explosive theatre, dance and cutting-edge technology. Using a set of headphones, Core takes each audience member on a personal journey through a large-scale steel structure, inviting them to trace the parallels of three potent stories exploring life as a young person in today’s fast-paced and judgemental world.

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!!
