Still suffering from that Hogmanay hangover? Well, no fear: here at EPT we’re hitting the ground running, kicking off our Spring 2011 programme with a bunch of events guaranteed to banish those January blues!
Wonderland | 13-15th Jan
From the team that brought you Meep and Moop and Twinkle Bell, Wonderland is an interactive show specially created for 3-6 year olds.
