Following the government announcement, the Corn Exchange and Learning Centre will be closed until further notice. Unfortunately this event will not be taking place and our Front of House team will be in touch with those who have booked tickets. You can read our full statement here.

A snowy half term adventure for all the family.

This is the story of an extraordinary explorer, a curious conjurer and pioneering problemsolver.

You’ll find him pottering in his shed; planning his latest mission. He is learning to
speak Penguin and hopes that you will too! When he arrives at the Antarctic will its icy wilderness meet his excited expectations? Will the penguins’ reception be frosty, or will the colony welcome him with open wings?!

With a playful energy and a mix of puppetry, music and song, this show will be a delightful celebration of wild creativity and the joy of individuality. Waddle on down and join the
expedition!

Please remember to bring your face covering with you as visitors are required to wear them in the building, unless you are exempt from wearing one, or if you are eating or drinking. This includes when you are watching a film or performance. If you remove it to eat or drink you must put it back on when you have finished.

Suitable for ages 3+

Duration: 1 hour (no interval)

Suitable for ages 3+

Tickets must be booked in advance and we ask customers to select an e-ticket if possible. If you are unable to book an e-ticket, please speak to our Box Office team.

We will be limiting the number of people admitted to each event to ensure appropriate social distancing and have rebuilt the seating in our main auditorium to facilitate this. Extra space has been left between rows, each seat as its own arm rest and each group will be separated by a Perspex screen. You must only book tickets for people in your household. If you wish to come with someone who is not in your household, they will need to book tickets in a separate transaction. This is for the purposes of Test and Trace and so that we can ensure that government guidelines are being adhered to for the safety of all of our visitors.

More information on your visit and the changes we have made to follow government and industry guidelines is available here.
