About the event:

DROP-IN ACTIVITIES

Meet a Moomin

11am - 12pm, 2 - 3pm & 4 - 5pm

Have you ever met a Moomin? Now’s your chance! Polka Theatre’s Moomin puppets have come out of hibernation especially to say hello! Enjoy a one-on-one experience meeting these beloved creatures and of course Polka Theatre’s skilful puppeteers!

Store Places for Love

10am - 5pm

Writing about her Christmas traditions as a child, Jansson described her family’s glass bauble as “store places for love”. Now it’s your turn to fill a bauble with trinkets and messages of love for friends and family.

Dear Santa Claus

10am - 5pm

Have you written your letter to Santa Claus yet? Help yourself to some materials, and write and decorate your letter to him – maybe you’ll even get a reply…

Snorkmaiden Style

10am - 5pm

Style yourself like Snorkmaiden and make a flower crown to wear proudly. The Sackler Centre is our designated quiet space, where you can make a crown and take a break from the busyness of the gallery.

Scandinavian Stories

10.20am, 11.30am, 1.30pm & 3.30pm (Workshop length: 40 mins)

Get lost in the Scandinavian folk tales that Tove would have grown up with as a child. Maybe you’ll even hear about the creatures that could have been the inspiration for the Moomins…

Go on a theatrical journey with Freshwater Theatre Company exploring the life and work of Tove Jansson. Maybe you’ll even be called on to take part in the story yourself…
