+ 11am Mary Poppins Returns (U)
Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) has a habit of turning up when she’s least expected – and when she’s needed the most. And that’s exactly what happens on a particularly stormy day in 1930s London.
Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) and her brother Michael (Ben Whishaw) are all grown up. But times are hard in Depression-era Britain, and, Jane, Michael, and Michael’s three children are heavy with sadness, reeling from the recent death of the children’s mother.
Mary Poppins has her work cut out for her. Michael is preoccupied with mountain of financial troubles he’s facing, and his three children are missing the spark that went out as soon as their mother died.
Featuring toe-tapping songs and bravura performances from Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda this is the ultimate April pick-me-up.

The workshop is open to all children and their families. Children should be accompanied by an adult.
Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
