Magic Day

mavis sparkleSunday 9 October 2016

Time: 11am-4pm

Venue: Touchstones Rochdale

All arts and crafts activities are FREE. No booking required - just turn up.

Come along to our Magic Day. Why not come along dressed as your favourite magical character? From mask making, storytelling, magical art and craft activities there’s so much for the whole family to enjoy together.

M6 Theatre Company presents Mavis Sparkle

Written and Directed by Gilly Baskeyfield and Dot Wood

Time: 11am & 2pm
Cost: £3, no booking required, pay on the day | Duration: 45 minutes (approx)

With a magician for a Dad and a stargazer for a Mum, no wonder there’s more to Mavis than meets the eye! A feather duster in one hand and a few tricks up her sleeve, our chatty cleaner is moving ever closer to making her dreams come true. With a little help from her cheeky cuckoo clock, mischievous mop bucket and a nice cup of tea, Mavis is on a journey north to see nature’s biggest light show with her own eyes. M6’s cosmic production mixes illusion, animation and laughter inspiring us all to dust away doubts, follow our dreams and reach for the stars!

For ages 4+ and families.
