MONDAY 25 JULY

Treasure Island
All aboard! Today you’ll explore the Story Museum through the magic of a treasure map. You’ll create your own islands and challenge your course-mates to find the hidden treasure. You will take part in a retelling of R.L. Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island, retold by our dramatic Story Leaders, and make up your own ending, complete with costumes and props.

TUESDAY 26 JULY

Ka-Boom Me Hearties!
Today you will make a marvellous pirate-themed comic of your very own with professional comic book artist, Kev F. Sutherland. Kev F. Sutherland has written and drawn comic strips for everyone from The Beano to Marvel Comics, from Doctor Who to Viz magazines

WEDNESDAY 27 JULY

Piratical Moves
Today you’ll learn some master pirate moves and stage fighting with movement director Emma Webb. You’ll then explore some famous fictional pirates, from Captain Hook to Captain Jack Sparrow, and create your own pirate character. Then it’s time for the Pirate Championships! Whose pirate will be the boldest?

THURSDAY 28 JULY

Piratical Art
Join us for a craft-themed day making props to take with you on your voyage at sea. Whether it’s a telescope, a treasure chest or a talking parrot, it’s extraordinary what junk modelling and a bit of imagination can conjure up!

FRIDAY 29 JULY

Stories At Sea
We’re now ready to create our own pirate stories! Working in teams, we’ll create a dramatic story inspired by the stories and characters we’ve encountered this week, and get ready to share. Will you go for documentary, sitcom, romance, or horror?

Wrap around care (9am-5pm) is available for a small additional cost. Please select this option during checkout.
