May Half-Term features Storytelling, Magic Pencils and Time Machines at The Met

May Half Term at The Met is full of fun for kids with two wonderful children’s shows and a free day of family activities.


On Tuesday 27 May The Full English present a free day of family folk activities from 10am – 3pm.  Step up, shake a leg, sing a song and draw your own comic characters with storyteller Sean Cooney, clog dancing extraordinaire Alex Fisher and illustration diva Katy Coope. Entrance to this event is free but must be registered in advance at The Met.


On Thursday 29 May at 12noon CBeebies stars animated six-year-old Little Howard and real grown-up Big Howard return to The Met for more interactive adventures in Little Howard and the Magic Pencil of Life and Death. Little Howard has discovered the magic pencil that drew him, but on the end of the pencil is an eraser that can rub him out. Can you help Little Howard escape his supernatural nemesis?  Suitable for ages 5+.


Finally, The People’s Theatre Company return on Saturday 31 May at 1.30pm with a modern twist on classic children’s rhyme Old MacDonald Had a Farm. All of Old MacDonald’s animals have gone missing! Luckily, a friendly scientist arrives with his time machine to try and help get them back. This fun filled farmyard tale mixes live action, puppetry and animation with lots of games, giggles and sing-along-songs. Suitable for ages 4+.
