On August 16th Channel 4 invited the children and parents on the Centre’s summer programme to a screening of Peter and the Wolf.
Children and parents alike were wowed by the imposing Paralympics structure outside and even more impressed on entering the building. The Channel 4 team had arranged a feast and everyone happily devoured the Pizza, Biscuits and the individual bags of sweets that accompanied the film.
There was increasing excitement as the families entered the impressive 60 seat screening room, their very own ‘cinema’ for the afternoon. The Children sat mesmerised, watching the classic story unfold. The movie closed to resounding applause. It was then time for 3D glasses, as they watched 3D clips that had everyone ducking in their seats.
For the families, many of whom cannot afford regular visits to the cinema, it was a wonderful opportunity to try something new and have a family afternoon out.
All the families and Centre staff would like to say a massive thank you to Channel 4 for holding such a wonderful event.
