The Noodle guide to beating boredom this summer
With the school summer holidays just around the corner, you might be looking for ideas to keep your kids entertained.
Well worry not, Noodle Performance Arts has a whole programme of summer activities to beat boredom and help your child develop new skills. Perfect for both existing students and those who are completely new to Noodle, our sessions focus on boosting self-esteem, building confidence and having fun.
- Our holiday clubs for three to eight-year-olds
Noodle’s three-hour holiday clubs are ideal for giving young children a taste of the performing arts in a fun, no-pressure environment.
The sessions all include dancing, singing, crafts and games and, depending on the theme, there may be a guest appearance from a special character.
This summer in Sheffield, there will be a Noodle Trolls Party, Disney Day and Pirate and Princess School at Beighton Lifestyle Centre. And Tinkerbell fans will be able to come face-to-face with their hero at a Fairy School at Ecclesall Church Halls.
Learn how to be a princess at North Sheffield’sPrincess Schools at Wickersley Library and the 82nd Scout Group at Chapeltown. Please check each Noodle area’s web pages for details of dates, times and prices.
- The Greatest Show for older children
For children aged between seven and 13, we will be running special sessions based on the popular musical film The Greatest Showman. The workshops will help your child develop their talents in the performing arts with time spent singing, dancing and acting.
Youngsters in Sheffield will be able to take part from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Thursday, August 16 at Beighton Lifestyle Centre. Meanwhile, children in Cheshirecan also get to grips with circus skills at a workshop on Thursday, August 9. The session will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm at Altrincham FC.
And for something a little bit different, there will be a workshop based on the popular musical Hairspray from 10am to 1pm at Todwick Village Hall in Rotherham, on August 14.
- Free Children’s University Workshops
Get a taste of what Noodle is all about at our free Children’s University workshops. Open to children aged from five to 12 with a Sheffield Children’s University passport, these one-hour sessions will be based on a popular musical and involve dancing, singing and acting. They will run from 10am to 11am on Monday, July 30 and Saturday, August 11. Book early to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited and are likely to fill up fast. If you don’t already have a Children’s University passport, they are available for £3.50 each from Sheffield Libraries and a number of learning destinations.
- Take to the stage at our summer camp
Our Noodle Summer Camps will teach your child everything they need to know about putting on a show. Youngsters will not only spend their time singing, dancing and acting, they will also learn behind-the-scenes skills too. They will help develop a script, find out about sound and lighting and make new friends as they work as a team to bring their creation to the stage.
Suitable for children aged five upwards, the summer camp will end with a performance for friends and family. Our Sheffield summer camp will run from Tuesday, August 21 to Friday, August 24 at Sheffield Park Academy. Our Cheshire summer camp will be held at The Venue in Rudheath, Northwich from Monday, August 20 to Thursday, August 23.
