First ever Family Sleepover at Birmingham Hippodrome inspired by War Horse

On Friday 25 October our Creative Learning team welcomed families to our very first Family Sleepover inspired by the National Theatre’s War Horse.

Commemorating World War 1 our studio theatre was transported to the trenches of France 100 years ago.  Free of technology the evening featured a series of activities reminiscent of 1914 England including crafts, games,  storytelling and ‘Trench Art’.     Families got together to sing songs from the era and lots of young people brought their own instruments too.
