Monday 12th February

Day One – Monday 12th February

Everyday of the Festival Emmanuel Hall will be packed with craft activities, our resident library and story-based activities for families to enjoy together.

When you buy a Festival Pass on Monday 12th February you get access to…

Silly Squirrel

The brilliant Above Bounds will be sharing their pop-up performance, Silly Squirrel, a playful story with puppets, gentle interaction and lots of laughs!

The Story Store

Watch an interactive performance at THE STORY STORE. With the help of Mich and Emma (our Dynamic Duo of Librarians) local folktales will merge with new epics collected from Exeter schoolchildren and be brought to life through visual storytelling, imaginative play and puppetry. Join in and help us fill in the gaps, put the pieces back together or make some silly story stylings of your own! 

Build a world out of cardboard

And while you’re here you can help us build a new world out of cardboard at our interactive exhibition that you can add to all week…

Every Seaside has a story to tell – messages in bottles, fossils in the rocks, footprints in the sand. What stories do you have about your local beach? What do you like to do best there? Has it changed since you first visited? Paddleboat invites families to come and explore our beautiful coastline through drama, music & sensory storytelling. We will bring to life what we all love about the seaside, discover what challenges it faces & think about how we can protect it for the future. 

Workshop length: 45 minutes – 1 hour
