Posted by Kalli Pasqualucci on 15 Mar 2018
Hello – hope that everyone had a really lovely Mother’s Day and weekend? I spent Saturday at Herald of Spring at Bourne Hall. Despite the not very Spring-like weather, we had a great time. My boys particularly enjoyed the animals from Hobbledown and doing archery with the Rainbow Leisure Centre. Did you go to the Herald of Spring?
If you are looking for things to keep the family busy, in the next two weeks, then look no further. This is a jam packed edition to fill your boots!!!
As always, the Epsom Odeon provides a great way of keeping the children busy, with their kids club every weekend. This weeks kid’s club is showing Tad the Lost Explorer. This weekend, Peter Rabbit is also being released. Each child will receive Peter Rabbit bunny ears with their tickets.
At the Leatherhead Theatre, you will be able to see The British Theatre Academy’s Cinderella. Showings will be at various dates and times over the Easter weekend.
And we are really looking forward to this exciting production of The Amazing Bubble Man at Epsom Playhouse on Thursday, 5th April at 2pm. Who doesn’t love bubbles? Tickets are from £10.
At the Herald of Spring, we also met Chris Wood from The Close Up Magic Show. My boys were mesmerised by his tricks and we are hoping to attend one of his next performances.
