Royal Shakespeare Company Workshops
The Workshop is your chance to get seriously creative at The Big Feastival. We are thrilled to be working with the Royal Shakespeare Company again as they celebrate individuality with their brand new 2019 family musical, The Boy in the Dress. From the novel by David Walliams, adapted by Mark Ravenhill and with music and lyrics by Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers, this heart-warming story bursts onto stage in Stratford-upon-Avon from 8 November. Join them for games, dressing up, face painting, workshops and lots more in a Walliams world of football…and fashion!
Royal Albert Hall Band
We are so excited to welcome Albert’s Band from the Royal Albert Hall to be with us at The Big Feastival this summer. Join musicians from the Royal Albert Hall for an interactive family workshop in which we will create an amazing new piece of music each day inspired by the headline act from The Big Feastival main stage. No prior musical experience necessary, just lots of enthusiasm.
Returning this summer, creativity knows no boundaries in the zone dedicated to arts and crafts. Paint, colour, stick and print until your heart is content!
