About In Our Yard: Wee Creatives

This summer we are delighted to be returning with Wee Creatives, live and in person, delivered in our newly transformed courtyard space. Across June, July and August there will be six sessions providing creative outdoor play for 2–5 year-olds and their adults. Expect finger painting, music making and creative crafts, not forgetting our super snack break. All materials will be provided (one pack per household) and a snack/drink for your wee creative is included in the ticket price.

June: Exploring visual art

July: Exploring Music

August: Exploring Dance and Drama


Capital Theatres is committed to keeping our audience, participants and staff safe. All activity will take place with experienced staff and within current Government guidelines. We are making over our courtyard space which has been designed to allow for social distancing between households. Spaces are strictly limited.

Detailed information of the guidelines and what to expect when you arrive will be sent to bookers prior to the event.

Activity will take place outdoors. We will be going ahead in most weathers so please remember to wear a coat, to wear a mask (adults) and bring something waterproof to sit on.

Requirements: Wee creatives must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the session.
