2. Pirate Gran: Sat 31 May 11am & 2pm

Meet Gran.

She bakes. She knits. You’d never guess she was a Pirate!

‘Pirating isn’t the life for everyone, but Gran says if you don’t mind sleeping in a hammock and being called Scary Mary, then it’s a career more girls should think about.’

With a pet crocodile under her bed, a wicked sense of humour and a whole raft of adventures under her belt – time with Gran is never dull!  Gran isn’t scared of anything. Not even monsters.

And then there’s Grandpa.

A brand new swashbuckling show, from the team that bring books to life.  Previous productions include Stick Man – Live on Stage, Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Private Peaceful.

3. In The Frame: Dance on Film

Dance on Film presents the genre of dance via a selection of films made by visual artists, choreographers and dance companies, redefining the idea of the moving image and constructing a new stage for dance.

From New York City Ballet’s New Beginnings – a moving film for two dancers shot at dawn at World Trade Centre 4 in New York in 2013; to a documentary that charts the lives of two principal ballet dancers who have been partners in life and dance for over 50 years.

We are also very proud to present the critically acclaimed All This Can Happen by Siobhan Davies and David Hinton, a film made entirely from early archive photographs and footage from the earliest days of cinema.

Gallery Opening Times
Open: Sun – Fri 11am; Sat 10am.
