JOIN US AS THE FACTORY RETURNS

Clock in for an incredible one-off family experience this April as you join the production line of the mysterious ATOMIC 50 factory. Step into the workshops of the past and future, making your own amazing metal objects as you go. You’ll be put to work and journey through time to explore Waltham Forest’s rich past in tin manufacturing and possibilities for a metalworking future.

Designed for accompanied children aged 7-11 years old, this 90-minute theatrical making experience introduces children to an amazing world of metalworking tools and techniques.

You will be guided by technical experts to create two tin objects – one to take home and one to add to the amazing artwork being built inside the factory.

Tickets are available between Saturday 6th April - Saturday 20th April with up to 3 performances a day.

We have a limited number of free tickets available for low income families. You can book a free Low Income Ticket if you are:

-A carer or a single parent looking after a child under 12

-Working less than 16 hours a week

-Have no income
