The Blanket Fort Club: The Quest for Starry Night Flurry


Welcome to The Blanket Fort Club, a wondrous place where the possibilities of invention are limited only by the imagination.

The Starry Night Flurry, a once in a lifetime celestial event, is about to take place and we’re invited to join Snow, Ice and Wind for the celebrations. But with Snow and Ice falling out and Wind blowing in a strange change, will we be able to get to the observatory in time?

A 60-minute immersive, sensory theatre experience with character ‘hosts’ guiding us through tactile spaces in a living, breathing, sonic blanket fort! Discover The Three Little Pigs in The Story Room, make bubbles in the Inventing Room, construct a castle in The Building Room. Once you have journeyed through the blanket fort, you’re a member of the club and all you’ll need to find your way back is a sheet and your imagination .

Accessible and inclusive to all, designed for:

  • Young children aged 5-8
  • Children with complex needs and disabilities
  • Children with profound and multiple learning disabilities

The Blanket Fort Club will be touring South Yorkshire this spring, with dates in Sheffield and Doncaster.

Sheffield dates:
  • 30 March & 1 April – RivelinCo at Burton Street Foundation, 57 Burton Street, Hillsborough, S6 2HH
  • 3–6 April – The Source, 300 Meadowhall Way, S9 1EA
