Autumn activities at the Alan Shearer Centre

Books, cooks and spooks are scheduled for an appearance in the Alan Shearer Centre activities programme this autumn.

This season's events begin on Saturday 5 October with a free storytelling session for children. Following the success of the Bag Book interactive stories, told by Gary Cordingley during the summer, some Alan Shearer Centre staff are now qualified to be able to perform the multi-sensory tales for people with learning disabilities.

Hallowe'en tricks and treats are in store on 31 October when the Centre holds its spooky parties for children and adults. There will be the opportunity to dress up in a costume, enjoy a disco and buffet, and the best pumpkin will win a prize.

Then remember, remember that on the fifth of November we will be cooking up a barbecue to celebrate bonfire night. Relish a sizzling sausage and a singalong karaoke style with a prize for the best Guy Fawkes dummy.

Arts and crafts and some messy play also feature in the next couple of months at the Centre and most of our activities are completely free – see our programme guide below and watch this space for news of our Christmas events.

Booking is essential, so please contact the Alan Shearer Centre reception on 0191 267 8118 to reserve your place.
