 Creative Cocoon programme for families with children under 7s

The Creative Cocoon programme was set up in April 2016 led by the management team at Alnwick Playhouse in response to demand from families in Alnwick and the surrounding areas for more cultural and arts participatory provision for children under 10.  


The pilot programme ran until October 2017 and was primarily funded by Arts Council England and programmed 73 sessions over 18months for 1394 participants and provided over 60 days work for 38 different artists.


Creative Cocoon is Alnwick Playhouse’s arts participation programme for families with children under 7.  The majority of the programme took place inside a studio space within Alnwick Playhouse rented from Northumberland Touring Theatre Company.


Programme Aims

·      To deliver high quality artistic experiences in a welcoming space with experienced and friendly practioners

·      To develop our family audience to support the whole of Alnwick Playhouse’s programme of activity

·      To support artists who are passionate about making work with and for children.
