Christmas for kids in Worthing

Our last post on grown-up festive fun proved very popular, so this week we have turned the focus on the smaller members of our community – the kids. The build up to Christmas is almost the best bit, so now’s the time to embrace it and get in the festive spirit!

So let’s take a look at wonderful Worthing and neighbouring areas to see what’s in store for kids in the run up to Christmas:

Getting physical – Ice Skating

Mummies and Daddies, it’s time to let out your inner Torville and Dean. Put your skates on at Worthing’s all weather Ice Rink – perfect for all the family with mini penguins for little ones to cling onto when things get slippery.

All I want for Christmas – Santa’s Grotto

Step aboard the Wonderland Train and visit Santa in his Christmas Grotto at Field Place this Christmas. A host of fun activities, fun fair rides and Christmas crafts including Christmas card making and cupcake decorating, face painting and much more is all included.

For those in the centre of Worthing, pop along to the Regnante School of Performing Arts on the 17th December when they’ll be kids Christmas Crafts as well as a chance to meet Santa in his Grotto.

He’s behind you – Christmas Shows

No family Christmas would be complete without a trip to the Panto. There are three taking place locally so take your pick:

Worthing Theatres have another swashbuckling production – this year’s panto is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Including a star studded cast with none other than golden boy of the 1990’s, Chesney Hawkes.

Alternatively why not pop along to the Robert Woodward Academy and check out their production of Wendy and Peter Pan (5/6/7th December). With tickets costing £7 for adults and £5 for kids, this won’t break the bank.

For those of you nearer to Shoreham – tickets are still available for Dick Whittington at the Ropetackle Arts Centre

If you fancy something a little different from a traditional panto but guaranteed to have the kids in stiches, book in for Father Christmas Comes up Trumps at the Connaught Theatre (sequel to Nicholas Allan’s Father Christmas needs Wee).

So lots of fun for the tiddly peeps – for more information on these and other seasonal events check out our What’s On pages
