TICKETED EVENTS (available to book at www.ventnorexchange.co.uk)
Lyngo Theatre: Tom Thumb
Join tiny Tom on his very big adventure!
Outwitting his parents and the ogre Tom shows everybody that even though he is small he is still mighty as he protects his brothers, finds the treasure and makes sure they’ll never be hungry again. This classic story is brought to life in a playful and fascinating show by the Aberdeen based Lyngo Theatre. Expect feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest as we join tiny Tom on his very big adventure!
Wardrobe Ensemble: The Star Seekers
Have you ever dreamt of flying to the moon? Meeting an alien? Becoming an astronaut?
Join star seekers Alph, Betty and Gammo on a journey through space where you take the steering wheel!
Inspired by their childhood wonder of the universe, Bristol based Wardrobe Ensemble have created a unique theatrical experience for children. The Star Seekers is an interactive show that explores the limitless majesty of galaxies, the solar system, shooting stars and planets through songs, silliness and anti-gravity antics. We need the Island’s Star Seekers to help them complete their mission and answer one of the greatest unanswered questions of the universe: What do astronauts really have in their packed lunch boxes?!
Film Screening: The Lego Movie
See it on the big screen!
Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary LEGO figurine who always follows the rules, is mistakenly identified as the Special — an extraordinary being and the key to saving the world. He finds himself drafted into a fellowship of strangers who are on a mission to stop an evil tyrant’s (Will Ferrell) plans to conquer the world. Unfortunately for Emmet, he is hopelessly — and hilariously — unprepared for such a task, but he’ll give it his all nonetheless.
