Explore The Stories In The Woods

Fun, creative, outdoor holiday activities for kids

For kids who are creative, adventurous and enjoy exploring outdoors. Growtheatre is running its fun-packed, creative outdoor family sessions in Ecclesall Woods again - every Thursday in August. 

Hosted by a range of extraordinary and enchanting characters, you will be invited to join him or her on a journey or quest and help them out! These family sessions promise to be full of entertainment, adventure, theatre, making and building, games and Forest School skills. They also encourage the adults to have fun with their children at their own pace! 

J.G. Graves Discovery Centre is at the Ecclesall Woods Sawmill Site on Abbey Lane and was opened in 2012. Part of Growtheatre’s remit is to make work that is inspired by local spaces and as such, the venue and the surrounding picturesque woodland is the perfect indoor – outdoor place. It is hoped that the kids and their adults will relish exploring this wonderful location.
