SUMMER 2021

​"It's like being on holiday for the first time and reading a book for the first time...I feel like I can do everything!” 

Year 3 Pupil ​

Calling all daring 6+ year olds and their grown ups. Do you enjoy adventures? We need your help to solve clues and welcome someone from the past in this immersive theatre and workshop experience.

 

It turns out that C.S Lewis was onto something with the Narnia books: Wardrobes really are portals between worlds. What dear old C.S might not have known is that most of these accidental time-travelling wardrobe explorers end up in Scarborough: and it’s down to the town’s children to help them out.

The adventure began this summer term in Scarborough schools with hundreds of Scarborough children taking part, but now we need families to get involved too.
