Theatre will throw open doors for family fun week

PLENTY of fun and laughter will fill a Bognor Regis theatre as it holds it first family fun week.

The Regis Centre will be jam-packed with free games and activities for youngsters to enjoy over half-term week.

Theatre spokeswoman Hazel Latus said: “We are really looking forward to it. It will be a new event for us and it will be something for the whole community.

“We want people to come into the venue and see what we can offer. It will also be a good way for us to help out other charities like ourselves.”

The week will run 
from Monday, February 17 until the following Saturday, from 10am until about 4pm.

One of the events will be a morning storytime session, with readers and theatre volunteers all dressing up as an 
added touch.

It is also hoped one of the mornings will include tales some of the area’s Polish children and their families can enjoy.

For those who want to show off their creative flair, local artist Rita Herbert will be running some arts and craft workshops.

There will also be a circus workshop, magic shows and some balloon modelling.

There will be dance displays in the foyer and hopefully an owl will even swoop by.

Mrs Latus said: “We really hope there will be something for everyone to enjoy. There will be lots of activities throughout 
the days. The events will all be free, which we hope will mean lots of people can enjoy them.”

There will be some small charges for face painting and it will be £5 to see the Pied Piper Theatre Company’s production of Care of Henry on the Saturday.
