It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we are all set to get you in the mood for Christmas with our Festive Family Day on Sun 2 Dec. A collaboration between Warwick Arts Centre, Warwick Sport and Warwick Retail, Family Day brings together a range of arts and crafts workshops, sports activities, theatre performances and food and drink for the whole family to enjoy.
Cosy up in our newly refurbished theatre or studio and enjoy our musical Christmas show, Wilde Creatures or a special, laugh-out-loud performance from Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists, Lords of Strut. There’s even a performance of Handel’s magnificent Messiah by the University’s very own Symphony Orchestra in the Butterworth Hall.
At Warwick Sport you can reach dizzying heights on the climbing wall, swim in the pool – complete with floats and toys – and even take part in a special game of rugby in association with Coventry Wasps. Or, take a short walk to Claycroft Fields to discover the free Activity Zone, kitted out with swings, mini trampolines and a basketball court.
Enjoy tasty treats from the food market and cafés, guaranteed to warm you on the coldest of days, or bring a packed lunch and your wellies to explore the Art and Nature Trail, which allows visitors to discover brilliant new sculptures across campus.
If you’re in need of some rest, families can chill out in the Board Games Room, decorate a gingerbread man in the Arts Centre Café, explore a wintery sensory room or get their faces painted. Children can even learn how to make their own Christmassy crystal structures with the Warwick Physics department and try their hand at crafting stars or graduation caps.
With so many free activities on offer, this is the perfect opportunity for the whole family to get together and experience sports, arts and creativity all in one place. For a full list of everything you can do, visit the Family Day website!
We can’t wait to see you there!
