Category: Family Fun Date: Sunday, 02 March 2014 The art of shadow theatre has delighted and entranced both adults and children throughout history, and now the secrets of its performers will be unveiled for all to see as part of a special silhouette animation workshop being held in London this March. In collaboration with Lightbox Cinema, the Parasol Unit is inviting parents and children to find out more about stop animation techniques, using nothing but a lightbulb, a screen and their fingers to tell the stories of the ancients. This workshop is very interactive and is designed to appeal to children aged between five and fifteen, along with their parents. The fun gets underway on March 2nd from 2:30pm and the price is just £5 per family. Make the most of your break in London at The Chesterfield Mayfair by booking with the Mayfair Weekends package, which includes a late departure on the Sunday - time enough to enjoy your free Champagne and afternoon tea.
