We had an incredibly busy Picnic & Play at the Dream Machine with 58 people!* However, it was wonderful to introduce so many new families to Lickety Play and have so many people from different backgrounds (over 5 different languages!) meeting and playing confidently and enthusiastically together.
In Funky Chicken we met the Quacking Duck Duck, the Cheeky Cheetah, the Meowing Cat and the Cheaty Minecraft!
We saw princesses in towers, purple boats, football stadiums, cars, friends going to college and in the garden from our Flying Balloons and met Granny Ann and Granny Conor, Granny Harley, Granny Maddison and Granny Mohamed in their tree-houses, mansions and houses in the forest of Monster Trees!
Hello My Name is Joe was excellent, with lots of laughter!
All the food went down well, and we even managed to share a small plate of leftover fruit with The Space’s cafe team and visitors.
We know some people were a little disappointed not to go into the Dream room itself on Saturday. Unfortunately because of a shortage of staff at the venue, that wasn’t possible this time, but there are lots of other free & pay what you can activities on at the Dream Machine!
Do go and discover it another day and tell us what you think! Visit their website here or find them on Facebook here.
*(Admittedly the room was a bit small for all 16 families and 3 actor pedagogues – we’ll make sure we have a smaller group here next time!)
