People Play Party




Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.

Join us to celebrate the launch of People Play – a new sculpture commission and exhibition by artist Alice Irwin at The Piece Hall. Play with puppets, projections, shadows and light. There will be music, food, drink and children’s activities – a free fun event for all the family. Family workshops include:

Drop-in and create a free-standing wire sculpture with artist Frank Darnley inspired by the symbols, colours and shapes of Irwin’s work.

Pin Puppets and Shadow Play

Drop-in and create a silhouette portrait, perform your very own show with handmade puppets and learn the enchanting art of hand shadows.
