Children can enjoy a week of activities and this half-term at the Woodville Theatre, Gravesend.

Here’s a list of what’s coming up:

Monday, February 12 – Furry Tails

Are you really sure of what happened to the wolf and those three little pigs?

What about Goldilocks?

And as for the three Billy Goats Gruff, how did they really deal with that troll?

All will be revealed in this beautiful show using puppets and props.

It’s full of fun and laughter and has an exciting soundtrack that you won’t be able to stop singing long after the show has finished.

Suitable for everyone aged 3 and up.

Tuesday, February 13 - Wrestling All-Stars

2018 sees a brand new line up of top International stars from the wrestling world come into action for a massive Superslam World title series.

Stars from all the top federations of the world will be represented in this huge tournament, as well as British favourite’s including Oliver Grey and TVs Love Island star Adam Maxted.

This two-hour action packed family event is a huge crowd pleaser, and with the special reduced ticket prices, it is the ideal family event.

If you are celebrating a birthday around the show date, let the theatre know and receive a special VIP meet and Greet pass to chat with the stars of the show at the end of the evening.

Friday, February 16 - Nick Sharratt’s Big Draw Along

Join this much-loved children’s writer and illustrator in a family-friendly, fun filled draw-along for all ages.

Nick’s best-selling picture books include You Choose, Shark in the Park and Pants.

He’s also the illustrator of Jacqueline Wilson’s phenomenally popular children’s novels.

He’ll be showing you how he creates characters like Tracy Beaker and Timothy Pope, sharing ways to invent your own crazy creatures and will give loads of top tips as you draw along with him.

Bring pencils, paper and something to lean on.

Throughout the week there are also showings of the children’s film Ferdinand at the Paul Greengrass Cinema.
