Recommended ages 6 to 12 years.

In this unique action-adventure experience, kids will be immersed in the rich story world of The Turners, based on Mick Elliott’s book series of the same name.

Being a Turner is hectic, one minute you’re a normal kid, the next you’re waking up to find you’ve been taken hostage by half-snake, half-human creatures. Leo and Abbie aren’t ordinary kids, they’re Turners, a secret species that changes from human to animal and now they’ve found themselves at the centre of a global plot to annihilate their kind… It’s a terrifying situation and now they have no choice but to unmask the shadowy figures behind it all… the world needs them!   

Equipped with a pair of headphones players physically act out the story together, each guided by their own rich audio score and individualised instructions. This is a very active and very human tech experience; taking the imaginative, physical play that kids love and souping it up with sound effects and a cinematic score.  

Audioplay is an exciting new audio experience that combines old-school creative play with high-quality audio to create an active screen-free entertainment experience. How does it work? Pop on your headphones, and step into the heart of the story and as one of the characters, physically playing out the action.    

This exciting audio experience encourages real-world imaginative play that gets everyone involved - so big people and little people can all come ready to have fun.   

No bookings required, drop in and join the fun!
