11am Pick 'n' Mix Flicks
A special programme of rarely seen short films from all over the world – this medley of movies is a brilliant opportunity for families to try out some bite-sized stories.

There’s a fairy-tale style adventure about a Rat who wants to be a prince, a colourful animation about a Goat Herder and his journey to feed his animals, a story of a lion who squeaks rather than roars, and lots more besides. See below for a list of confirmed films.
