Puppet show adventures, family festivals and outdoor theatre performances are all on offer during the summer across Warwickshire.

Members of Shakespeare’s England are offering a whole host of exciting activities to keep children and parents entertained over the next few months and during the holidays.

Ragley Hall will be hosting the much-loved Camper Calling family festival for the fourth year on August 23 which will include graffiti workshops, ukulele workshops, a silent disco and performances from the likes of Tony Christie and even Mr Motivator.

Arty tots can join Captain Codswallop in his hunt for Redbeard’s treasure puppet show and get involved with some exciting pirate themed crafts to take home at St Johns House Museum in Warwick.

One of David Walliams’ best-selling novels, Gangsta Granny, has been adapted for the stage and will be coming to Coombe Abbey for an Outdoor Theatre performance for all the family, along with Wuthering Heights performed against the backdrop of the stunning former Cistercian Abbey.

Families can meet the mini-beasts at Stratford Butterfly Farm with the giant African millipede, African land snail, stick insects and even a Madagascan hissing cockroach along with a new species of butterfly from Columbia, the Dero Clearwing all on display.

Here is the full list and details of events:

Helen Peters, CEO of Shakespeare’s England, the Destination Management Organisation for South Warwickshire said: “It can be difficult for parents to keep children entertained across the summer holidays but members of Shakespeare’s England are offering a massive number of events to keep families busy!

“With arts and crafts events, new exhibitions and plenty of festivals planned for the summer, the whole of Warwickshire will be buzzing with activities for all the family.

“We’re looking forward to keeping both local and international visitors entertained during their visit to Warwickshire this summer!”
