Almost all of our children’s workshops for Midterm Madness are sold out however there are still some places available for award-winning illustrator Steve Simpson’s workshop on Saturday February 18th.Be sure to book your place very soon as these are sure to go quickly. Following on from that we are screening the animated movie Howls Moving Castle which is enough to keep the kids entertained for hours.
