The Courtyard was filled with excited children and families on Saturday 21 January as Courtyard Family Saturdays celebrated its first birthday!


Throughout the last year, our building has been filled with family activities as part of Courtyard Family Saturdays. Every week from 10.30am on a Saturday morning there is a live show, workshop or film plus a free pre-activity for all of the family to get involved with.




Daring Dan shows off his juggling skills!

Courtyard Family Saturdays launched in January 2016 and has proved very popular over the last year with over 1000 people attending the events. To celebrate the occasion The Courtyard organised a birthday party on Saturday 21 January. After live show Oddly, families joined Courtyard Staff to sing Happy Birthday and blow out the candles on a beautiful cake made by Head Chef Jan. After tucking into squash and cake, families then took part in party games including Musical Statues and Pass the Parcel. Education Officer, Dan Pegler, was also on hand to entertain children with his juggling skills and a craft area was set up to make party crowns!
