Keep moving with the Warwick Family Day

Lots of free campus-wide activities and performances on Sunday 16 June 2019

Perfect for Fathers’ Day!

A Graceful Act of Stupidity by Candoco Dance Company

Enjoy an exciting day of family friendly activities on Sunday 16 June as Warwick Family Day returns for more summer fun.

Taking place across the University of Warwick’s campus, in Coventry, the event runs from 10am to 5pm.

With many activities free, there’s loads to see, make and play with, plus a food market filled with tasty treats and a range of cafes to ensure no-one goes hungry.

Enjoy a good old bop with Baby Loves Disco’s Baby Rave and Bhangra Tots, or jump on the Land Train to investigate what’s on offer at the campus’ incredible new world-class £49m Sports Hub, complete with indoor climbing and bouldering experience, and 25m 12-lane swimming pool.

There’s also a range of entertaining performances.

See the latest production from Strictly Come Dancing stars Candoco Dance Company, A Graceful Act of Stupidity, or celebrate the 80th anniversary of The Wizard Of Oz with a colourful new all-singing all-dancing stage production of the iconic movie by Coventry’s acclaimed Three Spires Guildhall.

Meanwhile, the dedicated Music Stage sees appearances from famed community choir Pop Chorus, vintage vocal harmony quartet The Boogaloo Babes, and The University of Warwick Flute Choir.

Look out too for Bubbleology, storytelling sessions, science talks for ages 6-plus, face painting, cupcake decorating, classic board games, a Sensory Zone for little ones to get messy(ish), rocket making, tennis, and much more. There’s also a chance to shoot some hoops and bounce on the trampolines at the Claycroft Activity Zone.

The day-long event is inspired by the theme of movement, so scooters, bikes and rollerskates are all welcome too.

Warwick Family Day has been bought to you by Warwick Arts Centre, Warwick Sport, and Warwick Retail, in collaboration with WMG and Warwick SU.

Perfectly timed for Fathers’ Day, it’s a great opportunity for the whole family to get together and experience sports, arts and creativity all in one place.
