Northern Ballet's Merlin (PG) + Free Workshop

Family Film Club


Inspired by the story of the mythical wizard, Northern Ballet's 'Merlin' is a sweeping epic adventure of heartbreak, hope and more than a little magic. 

Choreographed by Olivier Award-winning Drew McOnie (Broadway's King Kong and Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom), expect an enchanting spectacle. An absolutely  unmissable legend - told through Northern Ballet's blend of classical ballet and unrivalled storytelling. 

We're really pleased to present a live performed recording of this spectacular production and hope that it will be a great opportunity for young audiences to give dance performance a try in a relaxed cinema environment!

Ahead of the screening at 10am in the cinema foyer, join us for a fun movement workshop with artist Malachi Lewis-Paul inspired by Merlin. Free to all children with their families.
