The Playhouse

Welcome to Playhouse. Come play! Every afternoon we’re running creative and crafty workshops for you. Pop by for a chat and see what we’re doing today, or check out our notice board. Or are you more the type to spend the day hiding from the heat and hangovers? Relax in the shade with us, come play with strangers.

Events

Assassin (Sign up)

ALL DAY at The Playhouse

Meet people and kill them!
Assassin is a slightly more complicated game of tag – you find your designated weapon, you find your target, and you take your target with that weapon. If you kill your target, you take on their mission.
If you want to play, come to Playhouse before 7PM on Wednesday to register.
To register you'll need your name and a suggestion for a weapon.

Wonderous Word Wizard

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm at The Playhouse

Fanciful. Whimsical. Scholarstical. Good. These words—and more—could be used to describe none other than YOU! Sit down with our resident Word Wizard (poor arts graduate) and he will use his Arcane Spellbook (second hand thesaurus) and with the power of Literary Magic (my degree does nothing please send help) he will divine three words that encapsulate your essence and gift them to you via a card!
