TakeOff Festival returns this October for another fantastic week of world-class children’s theatre and family fun in venues across County Durham from Monday 17 October. TakeOff Festival is England’s leading festival of theatre for children and young people. Produced by Theatre Hullabaloo it is a week-long festival of shows, workshops and family fun for children in venues across the North East. Each year they bring some of the most exciting theatre companies from the UK and beyond to the region so that their work can be enjoyed by schools, families, children and young people in a variety of venues.
This year, the country’s leading festival of children’s theatre is even bigger and better with over 70 shows in 22 venues finishing with a family celebration spilling out onto the streets of Durham city centre with the fabulous TakeOff Family Day on Saturday 22 October. Over 15 shows, for children of all ages, will run throughout the day at venues in and around the city centre including a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Durham Town Hall.
