Kids Club

Saturday’s tend to start mercilessly early in households with young 'uns; by 10:00 it can feel like the day is already half gone. Give yourself and your kids a break: mosey on over to 'our house’ for a Saturday morning playdate. We have an ever-changing diet of child-friendly fare (with nary an ‘E’ number or artificial additive among them!). This isn't a drop off playdate, though; all children must be accompanied by an adult (just as all adults must be accompanied by a child or two!).  And best of all, from Sep '16, we have teamed up with 4 local primary schools so every Kids Club is an opportunity to fund raise for a designated local school.

In addition to our weekly Saturday morning fix we also schedule kid-friendly matinees during the school holidays. These can be very popular; pre-booking takes the guesswork out of the day's plans.

And we periodically partner up with Schooling the Imagination to offer kids the opportunity to learn about animation and film making, and then to see the fruits of their efforts up on the Lexi big screen.  Take a squiz at what was achieved recently in a 2 hour workshop at the Lexi:  Wednesday's film is here, and Thursday's here.
