Scream Time

Are you kids getting enough scream time?

It’s official… children and teenagers who are exposed to live theatre are more likely to develop emotional and cognitive skills, claims a recent study by the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development at Birkbeck University as commissioned by Encore Tickets.

Meanwhile, the UN’s World Health Organization recently recommended that toddlers and young children should spend no more than an hour a day indulging in sedentary screen time.

Therefore, this October half-term we’ve pulled together a thrilling range of activities and productions across Norfolk and Suffolk that will get kids off their screens and into the region’s leading theatres and museums… and what’s more, the more you see the more you’ll get…

Simply collect stamps on the flyer you can pick up at participating venues and you’ll receive the following incentives*…

3 stamps: a drink and/or snack to the value of £3.50 per ticket holder at any participating venue

5 stamps: 25% discount per ticket holder on tickets for future events at any participating venue

7 stamps: a free ticket to the Christmas pantomime at either the Theatre Royal, Norwich or the New Wolsey Theatre

*Stamped flyers and proof of ticket purchase will be required to redeem rewards.
