Bubble, Bubble, Toil and Trouble: Meet Shakespeare’s Wicked Witches
Join us by the cauldron as we explore the creepy world of Shakespeare’s wicked witches from the famous play Macbeth. We’ll learn about the mischief these meddling creatures created for the other characters in the story, and add weird and wacky ingredients into the cauldron to brew our very own charm of powerful trouble. Practice your best witch impersonation and cackle to help recite the magic spell!
Children will love taking part in this interactive story, presented by Maxine Mellor and Nadine Kelly of Core Creative Education.
Recommended age: 3-12 years
