Are you struggling to come up with fun ways to keep the kids entertained during the long summer break?

Fear not - The Fisher Theatre in Bungay has organised a host of activities perfect for children of all ages during July and August.

Programming manager Laila France said: “We hope that there is something for everyone, and that the activities might bring some inspiration and fun to what can sometimes seem like a very long holiday.”

First up is the ‘How we used to live’ project, which is run in conjunction with Dramatic Impact.

The project, on July 25, 26 and 28, allows children aged 11 to 18 years-old to share time, stories and experience with older members of the community.

It is supported by Waveney District Council and can only accommodate a small number of participants - so book now to avoid disappointment.

Next up, on July 29 and September 2, is ‘Junk Modelling’ with Cinema and Create.
