We will provide several building tours throughout the day that will highlight the history and heritage of our building and showcase the theatre’s connections with a host of global entertainers, including Anna Pavlova, Dame Margot Fontaine, Maria Callas, Juliette Binoche and Dame Maggie Smith. Tour times: 10:30am; 12:30pm; 2:30pm.

We will offer two intergenerational dance workshops where young people can join in with their grown ups to learn dances from across the globe – the vibrant Brazilian Samba, the timeless English Waltz through to jumpin’ jive from America and the dance of the spanish matador, the Paso Doble. 11:30am, 1:30pm.

We will also run two workshops exploring the global origins of pantomime. Participants will be introduced to the archetypal characters and rhythms that are clearly recognizable when watching the dame, the prince and the villain, whilst creating a new finale song to stage.
