PLASTIC HEROES – Ariel Doron
In a combat zone with no clear enemy or goal, the border between reality and fantasy starts to blur: is all this really happening, or is it all just a game? Violence, desire, hate and fear are put on the table as children’s toys are brought to life, and the innocence of child-like play encounters the bleeding reality of an adult war.
Duration: 45 mins
FEBRUARY – Saturday 3rd 2pm – 4pm £6/ £4/ £2 (0 – 4 years)
1978 FAMILY DANCE PARTY – Horse + Bamboo 40th Anniversary
When we decided to begin our 40th birthday celebrations with a dance party, we got to thinking what the records were that the staff at H&B were listening to back then. Luckily 1978 was a great year for music. So we’re dusting down our vinyl and copying our cassettes. Wear your Dad’s rusty badges with pride, teach the pre-teens how to Pogo, and the seven year olds how to Skank. Bop til you drop!

GRAPHIC NOVEL MAKING DAY – Edward Taylor
A chance to make up comic strips on the spur of the moment. Over the day you’ll work in groups to conjure up stories that lead everyone up the garden path, don’t travel as the crow flies and instead go from A to B via Q. An ability to draw is useful but not necessary. The emphasis is on surprising yourself, being imaginative and enjoyment.
Edward is one half of the Whalley Range All Stars who have presented a giant pig, a hungry compost heap, a giant head in a shed and a model village, complete with a model snowstorm, at Horse and Bamboo.
