Family Fun Time

  • Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm & 1pm - 4pm both days

Come along to our fun-filled family fun days at the PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay...

The day is split into two and jam packed with lots of fun things to see and do including award winning Comedy Magician Darren Bonas, Karl Jeffery - The Puppet Man plus an exciting encounter with Animal Antics where the audience will have the opportunity to look, touch and hold a series of exotic animals, such as Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches, Giant African Millipedes, Tarantulas, Toads, Lizards, Snakes and even Birds of prey.

Happy Faces Face Painting will be around for each session armed and ready to paint away and Holly's School of Steel will be playing at the entrance and at different times throughout the day for visitors, creating a wonderful musical atmosphere as well as stalls, raffles and guest appearances.

Making an appearance on the Monday is Grainger Games in their trademark orange hummer. Parked just outside the venue, visitors are invited to try the latest video game releases. The boot of the hummer opens up and is fitted with a large plasma TV, Xbox 360 console with Kinect, plus a PS3 and Wii console with a huge selection of games to choose from.

Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to enjoy a day out and some guaranteed fun for all the family!!
