kirkham henry school of performing arts

Sunday 28 August – Monday 29 August, 11am – 4pm

Have you been inspired by our current exhibition; Angelina Ballerina to have a go at ballet and other forms of dance? Well here's your chance to have a go with our mini drop-in dance classes, led by Kirkham Henry School of Performing Arts. Throughout the day the talented team will be leading you to the dance floor with an introduction to an array of different dance styles, so pull on your dance shoes and get ready to have a ball!

Keep the whole family entertained with the hugely popular Angelina Ballerina illustration exhibition, on display until Sunday 4 September. See Katharine Holabird’s very first scribbles for this enchanting series, later transformed by Helen Craig, into the iconic dancing white mouse. These exquisite illustrations have delighted and captivated children for years, sparking creativity and stretching their imagination. Exhibition provided by Seven Stories - The National Centre for Children's Books.

To celebrate our current illustrations exhibition Angelina Ballerina, students from York University have created a very special garden trail for families to enjoy throughout the summer holiday.

Normal admission prices apply.
