Half Term Magic at The Old Fire Station
The Old Fire Station is providing some magic and sparkle for the school half term with two performances of this beautiful and enchanting show for children aged 4+ and their families.
M6’s cosmic production mixes magic, illusion, animation and laughter inspiring us all to dust away doubts, follow our dreams and reach for the stars!
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, Spike the hedgehog and a nice cup of tea, Mavis is on a journey north to see nature’s biggest light show with her own eyes.
Written and directed by Gilly Baskeyfield and Dot Wood and performed by Eve Robertson, the show uses a combination of original storytelling, highly visual imagery and evocative music to ignite the imagination of children.
