What If…? A Festival of Children’s Stories

By Theatre Alibi

From the 31st of January to the 17th of February 2024 we are hosting ‘What If…?’ a festival of children’s stories.

There will be theatre performances, workshops, an exhibition, author and illustrator talks. And Emmanuel Hall will be transformed into a portal for creativity and play, all centred around the magic of story!

With a café on site, selling local produce, the festival will become a space for families to spend their day, moving from one vibrant creative activity to the next.

‘What If..?’ launches the company’s exciting new vision for Emmanuel Hall as a Centre for the Imagination for Children and Young People.

What’s On:


30th & 31st January 

‘Igloo’ by Travelling Light – a performance for 0-3 year olds followed by a facilitated play session. Click here to book.
