  • Saturday Art Workshops!

    Next block starts Saturday 21st April 2018

    £90 per ten week block

    Is your child aged 7-11? At Create, we’re hosting weekly art workshops designed for young people to have fun and get creative through art-based activities.


    Held in our state of the art Visual Art and Design Centre and run by professional tutors, children are invited to take part in a range of activities using a wide spectrum of creative processes. Within the sessions, children can try printmaking, ceramics, life drawing, painting, textiles, sewing and 3D modelling.


    Saturday Art Workshops run in 10-week blocks, with three opportunities to join across the academic year. Classes are held 10am-12pm on Saturdays. Parents are encouraged to attend a few sessions to help their child settle in, but we do encourage young people to make friends within the group and attend independently.

  • Wading

    Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th April 2018, 7.30pm

    £6.50 (£3.25 VWNC Students)

    by Simon Marshall
    Director: Christopher Neil


    Education @ The Palace and Vision West Nottinghamshire College Performing Arts Department present this new play by Simon Marshall as part of the Write Track programme.


    Jamma has found a purpose – a video camera.  She is keeping a record of her life, so the future can know how it was for the ‘left-behinds’.  She wants to be part of history … in case her world suddenly ends.


    Set in a Nottinghamshire of the near-future, Wading explores an England where natural disaster has become the norm.  Sea levels have risen 13 metres, storms hit regularly and life trudges on in the Midlands.


    This is Jamma’s own reality show-come-documentary about perseverance, communication and crucially, hope.

  • Constellations by Nick Payne

    Saturday 28th April 2018, 7.30pm


    “But if everything I’m already gonna do already exists, then what’s the point?”

    In a chance encounter at a BBQ, Marianne and Roland meet.

    At the same BBQ, they don’t.

    Heralded by The Telegraph as a “playful, touching and intelligent play that packs more into an hour than most plays do in three”, Constellations is a story about science, possibility and honey.

    Recipients of the 2017 York Performance Award, Squabbling House Theatre are delighted to present their “gloriously entertaining” and “five star” debut production on the fourth stop of their Yorkshire tour.

    The show will begin at 7.30 with a running time of 1 hour and 20 minutes, without interval.
