Plenty of fun to be had at Carriageworks Theatre this half term

Half Term fun is finally here! With loads to choose from for all ages at Carriageworks Theatre… draw along with the amazing Nick Sharratt with Vikings in the Supermarket, laugh along at the Clean (as possible) Comedy Show for age 12+, huff and puff with Three Little Pigs or set sail with three youngsters as they run away from their children’s home and find a mystery in Heaven Eyes.  All except the comedy show have a free pre-show activity hour to make the fun last a little bit longer.
First up is the brilliant Nick Sharratt with Vikings in the Supermarket – always hugely popular when he comes to Carriageworks, this is an amazing opportunity for little fans and artists to meet this amazing illustrator (known for characters including Tracey Beaker) he chats about his work and invites the audience to draw along with him.  He will also be signing books you buy or bring along, at the event for an extra special keepsake.  Mon 13 Feb, 2.30pm.  Tickets £5 (£7 adults) for age 6+.
It’s always tricky to find live entertainment for kids age 12+, well look no more!  Presented by Just Fair Laughs, the fantastic Clean (as possible) Comedy Show is cutting edge stand-up comedy with a 12a certificate.  So come along and laugh with your tweens as three top comedians from the UK comedy circuit perform a swear free act.  Tony Vino MC’s for Archie Kelly (Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy) and Dominic Woodward, the Best Breakthrough Act nominee at the Northwest Comedy Awards.  Wed 15 Feb, 7.15pm, Upstairs @ the Carriageworks.  Tickets £5 (£8 adults).
For the littler people in your life the inexhaustible Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company return with the ingenious and hugely popular re-telling of the favourite children’s story, 3 Little Pigs. Perfect for ages 2 and beyond, it is packed full of puppets, music, comedy and thrills for the whole family.  Thurs 16 & Fri 17 Feb, 11am & 2pm.  Tickets £8.50 (£9.50 adults) family ticket £34 for age 2+
The final family show of the week is an amazing story brought to life by the unmissable Theatre Sans Frontieres.  Heaven Eyes by David Almond (Skellig) is the mysterious, heart-breaking and humorous play telling the story of three youngsters who run away from their children’s home and set  sail down the River Tyne on a makeshift raft.  Stuck on the mudflats, they meet a strange girl who lives with an old man, Grampa.  The girl has a secret only Grampa knows… and he’s not telling.  Sat 18 Feb, 2pm & 6.30pm.  Tickets £8.50 (£9.50 adults) family ticket £34 for age 9+
