Familyfun Tip on Imaginosity
It is advisable to book in advance during holidays and weekends as they operate a ticketing system for their 2 hour visit.
Play acting and acting out is an important part of childhood. It is natural for children, particularly the under tens to invent stories and perform them, quite un-self consciously. So the Kids Stage at Imaginosity provides all that they need to make this acting out even more fun. There are a myriad of props to use. There are costumes to dress up in and make up to complete the ‘look’. Lighting and changing scenery give many children their first taste of ‘theatre’. There is the opportunity to experiment with both formally directed theatre and improvisation.
Be A Rock Star
Do your kids harbour dreams of being a rock star? You could start by taking them to visit the Music Corner at Imaginosity. Here children get the change to grab a guitar and watch themselves perform on the big screen. No inhibitions and no worry about the noise.
Costumes, different backgrounds and virtual instruments allow kids to be part of a band or solo performers. There are no harsh judges either to comment on their efforts. Let Imaginosity help you find out if you have the X Factor at their Music Corner.
Imaginosity Construction Company
The Construction Company at Imaginosity is at the cutting edge of environmentally friendly building and design. So kids will learn important lessons about solar power and energy conservation while building and creating. From brick-laying to plumbing, junior builders will have a ball at the Construction Company.
