Easter at the Customs House
Written by Spark on 30th March 2018
Arbuthnot is back for more fun and frolics at The Customs House in an all-new show.
The panto favourite is staging his own game show at the South Shields theatre during the Easter holidays. What could possibly go wrong?
Arbuthnot’s Super Happy Silly Fun Game Show combines singing, dancing and audience participation in a riotous, interactive – and maybe a little bit messy – game show.
Performances are on Saturday, April 7.
David John Hopper, who plays Arbuthnot, said: “I’m really looking forward to Arbuthnot’s Super Silly Happy Fun Game Show. I’ve always wanted to do one.”
“We have a lot of fantastic prizes to give away, including Easter eggs, family tickets for this year’s pantomime, Beauty and the Beast, and even a PlayStation 4!”
Tickets for Arbuthnot’s Super Happy Silly Fun Game Show, which is aimed at the under-10s, are £5 each and available from the box office on (0191) 454 1234 or online at www.customshouse.co.uk.
The Customs House cinema will be screening Peter Rabbit, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rose Byrne and James Corden as the voice of Peter Rabbit, throughout the holidays, with a family
ticket priced just £20.
There will also be a one-off screening of The Wind in the Willows, a spectacular new musical by Julian Fellowes, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, recorded at The London Palladium, at
2pm and 6.30pm on Sunday, April 8. It stars Rufus Hound, Simon Lipkin, Neil McDermott, Craig Mather, Denise Welch and Gary Wilmot.
The Learning and Participation team will also be holding Mini Makers and Mega Makers sessions for children under the age of 11 and their grown-ups and 11 to 13-year- olds, who
do not need to be accompanied, respectively. Mini Makers takes place on Monday, April 2, with a Squishy, Sticky and Fluffy theme, exploring fun art materials, and on Monday, April 9, with paintings inspired by 1960s patterns in Eye Aye, between 11am and 1.30pm. The cost is £2 per child.
Mega Makers sessions will explore the same themes on the same dates, from 2.30pm to 4pm (last entry 2.45pm) and also cost £2 per person.
