The Night Zoo - Spare Parts Puppet Theatre. Jamie lives in a concrete jungle, a fast-paced and busy city. From her window high above the city Jamie dreams of making friends with animals, but Mum and Dad won’t let her have a pet in the apartment. Tonight, her dreams will take her on a one-of-a-kind visit to the zoo, where she discovers the remarkable joy an animal can bring into her life. The Night Zoo explores the special connection between humans and animals and the importance of caring for another living thing.

Full circus carnival action with Circus WA – workshops for 5-8 years, 9-14 years and 15 + years are a great place to develop some of the tricks of the circus trade including trampoline, acrobalance, aerials, tight wire, hoops and juggling.

Inkling Art Space school holiday art classes – draw and sculpt your own monster inspired by Tim Burton’s illustrations or perhaps the Tjanpi Desert Weavers from the central desert to sculpt animals and people.
