See, Make & Do – The Red House

Six of the East of England’s most exciting arts spaces are coming together this February half-term to present a variety of hands-on, mostly cost-free, family- friendly activities.

Whether that be…
getting scientific here at The Red House
throwing shapes at DanceEast
applying gory stage make-up at the New Wolsey Theatre
holding a tune at Snape Maltings
crafting costumes at the Norwich Theatre Royal
or building your very own book at the National Centre for Writing
there’s something new to See, Make & Do for all ages this half-term.

The Red House is the former home of Suffolk composer Benjamin Britten and his partner, the celebrated singer Peter Pears. The House is now a place to visit and explore their lives, beautiful home and garden, and the music they created.
