Magical events arrive at Thurrock libraries this Easter
YOUNGSTERS will have a chance to walk with dinosaurs or take a trip beyond the stars thanks to a series fun and educational events taking place at Thurrock’s libraries this Easter. From Tuesday 3 April to Wednesday 11 April two new workshops will arrive offering fun for all the family.
Digital Dinosaurs will bring the ancient beasts back to life along with spiders, sabre tooth tigers and the solar system in an exciting augmented reality experience. Children will be mesmerised as the pictures they colour in come to life, move, dance and sing in front of their very eyes. The free event promises digital fun for children aged seven and above, and takes place on the following dates across the borough:
· Tuesday 3 April at Corringham Library from 2pm to 4pm
· Thursday 5 April at Grays Library from 11am to 1pm
· Friday 6 April at Belhus Library (South Ockendon Centre) from 11am to 1pm
A special Digital Dinosaurs, Doodles and Dough workshop is also available, which offers the opportunity to create objects with Play Dough and make short animations. This event costs £1 per child and takes place from 11am to 1pm on Friday 13 April at Chadwell Information Centre.
Also arriving this Easter is the professional theatre show By the Light of the Moon. Perfect for children aged 3 and above, the show tells a heartwarming tale of difference and friendship as presented by the Full House Theatre. Book your tickets for a special showing on one of the following dates:
· Tuesday 10 April at Belhus Library at 11am
