Young people and families of Wolverhampton – transform Newhampton Arts Centre’s New Horizons tent into an accessible and inclusive underwater landscape for the day! You can create and sing sub-aquatic songs, craft handmade sea-life or just find the sensory chill-out space that you need. Featuring interactive puppetry, music, movement, drama, and craft fun, join Cloud Cuckoo Land’s artists in imagining, relaxing and creating a space just for you. Bring your ideas and take ownership of this part of Same Difference, a creative festival showcasing the talents of young people in the city.
