Meet the Pixel Pixies and Nanny Blackenwyte at Derby's Quad
Quad in Derby is holding a series of Christmas-themed family friendly events next month.
The Pixel Pixies and Nanny Blackenwyte will entertain younger audiences in a series of events taking place on Saturdays in December.
Pixel Pixies events will include making Christmas tree decorations, having a family photo with a difference in QUAD’s digital Christmas grotto and a seasonal breakfast and games with a screening of The Muppets' Christmas Carol.
The ‘Pixel Pixies’ and ‘Nanny Blackenwyte’ are fun characters aimed at entertaining those aged four and above.
Katrina Farrell, Quad's head of visitor services, said “We were thinking about ways to engage our younger audiences with the seasonal festivities at QUAD and thought the idea of mischievous beings, who could be imagined living within the projectors at QUAD, would be appealing and above all fun!”
The first Pixel Pixies session, on December 1 at 3pm, is a chance to meet Nanny Blackenwyte before the Cine Kids screening of Frankenweenie.
The event is free to all those with a ticket for the screening of Frankenweenie (PG) at 3.30pm.
Pixel Pixies and Nanny Blackenwyte will be making decorations for the Christmas trees at Quad on December 8 - there is a chance to drop-in between 2pm and 5pm and make some Christmas tree decorations to take home, the cost is £4 per child.
Quad will be setting up a Digital Grotto on December 15, and families can be photographed and ‘green-screened’ into one of a number of Christmas settings between 10am and 1pm. The cost, including a photo in the Digital Grotto to take home, is £5 per family.
The final session, on December 22, starting at 9.20am, is a seasonal breakfast with the Pixel Pixies and Nanny Blackenwyte. The breakfast will include food, games and storytelling before a cinema screening of The Muppets' Christmas Carol. The cost is £10 per child which includes breakfast, a gift and cinema ticket for The Muppets' Christmas Carol.
