Scrooge’s Christmas Carol – Rainbow Factory

“Scrooge’s Christmas Carol” is the Rainbow Factory’s third Christmas Show. We have been privileged enough to see all three and the performances have been outstanding each and every year.

Without giving too much away of the story (after all, adults are meant to enjoy it as well as the kids!) why should you choose to see this show over any of the others in the area?

The performance is accessible to all.

The children sit on cushions on the floor and can move and wiggle as much as they like. No need for binoculars or climb a mountain of stairs to get to your seat. You are so close you can touch the actors and have photos taken afterwards.

It is made for children.

The show is “only” 40 minutes long which means younger children can enjoy it wouldn’t being bribed to stay still/quiet and there is childish humour involved.

It is also for adults.

This performance has more quick witted puns than the previous shows and so you will enjoy it as a show in it’s own right.

It is cheap!

Tickets are only £6 each. With money tight at Christmas, it is so much better value than some of the bigger theatres in the region who seem to charge a small fortune for the Christmas pantomime. (parking is free as well!)

The staff and performers are wonderful, genuine people.

Rainbow Factory is almost our second home and without them, Heidi would not have developed as she has done. The Rainbow Factory is a small, local business and they put so much in so it is only right to support them in whatever way possible.

So what about the actual show – Scrooge’s Christmas Carol? Well, as you would expect, it is fast paced, but probably unlike any version of the story you have seen enacted before, with the use of puppets, songs and various other effects (not wanting to spoil the surprise at the end!)

There is a slightly scary part 10 minutes in with a ghost. However, this quickly forgotten about but something just to bear in mind.

However, the most upsetting part was with about 10 minutes to go, Heidi asked if it was nearly the end, because she didn’t want it to end at all!! Only bribery stopped a minor meltdown!!

This blog post could best to summarised by Scrooge himself when he said “Christmas is about grabbing as much joy as you possibly can” – and he is correct. As such, one of the best ways of doing that this Christmas is to go and see Scrooge’s Christmas Carol!!

And because you’ve made it so far, here is a sneak peek of the show…

DISCLOSURE: We received 2 tickets for this show, although there was no influence on this post.

Rainbow Factory – Summer Holiday sessions 2017

With Heidi about to start school in September (boo!), this is the last hurrah of having random time off during the week to do random kiddie stuff. As a result, we went down to one of our favourite places in the world – the Rainbow Factory – for their Summer Holiday sessions, and we went to the Superheroes event.

The events change each week, but the concept is the same for each week. As a result, you could go every week during the school holidays, and have a different experience each time.

The general theme is there is a “warm-up” at 10.45am before the activities start at 11am. Each activity is timetabled for 30 minutes and there is a sequence to the activities so if you have got a clash, you can still do the activities that you want to do.

To get the most out of the day, the best tips are:

Get there for 10.30. It does get busy and you really want to get there for the warm-up

Sign-up to the activities. Once you know what you want to do, sign up to the activities on the sheets provided. They do get filled quickly and so it is a good idea to do that first. However, if you/your child changes their mind, cross off your name so someone else can do the activity!!

Go for the whole day. Even if you just pay for a couple of activities, there are loads of free things to do. Make sure you don’t have to rush off after an hour or so.

The activities are completely different each week, but we did Super Hero and Super Villain training, Controlling the Weather, Creating explosions (both science related) and Marshmallow target practice (which was just firing marshmallows at targets – very fun!).

20170803_143905.jpg
Marshmallow Target Practice!

In reality, we couldn’t have done another activity as the pair of us were tired. However, I think if you had an older child, then they could squeeze another activity in. We did the online VIP pass (£13.75), which made it easier at the reception and meant that you didn’t have to ration the activities. It also guaranteed entry, which is also a reassuring thing because it did get busy.

Ingredients to make rainclouds

In terms of ages, I wouldn’t want to take a child under 3 to be honest. It would probably be a bit too much for them, and the top end would probably be about 10 years old. There were loads of 6 to 8 year olds, and the activities are best aimed for them.

When people ask me what the Rainbow Factory is, it is very difficult to describe, because everything is totally different. However, it is teaching children through play and structured activities so they become more creative and confident. However, none of this would be possible without the excellent staff there – always happy (at least on the outside!), always willing to help and always wanting to interact on your child’s level. They help the shy children come out of their shell and they interact with the uber- confident children. They are the stars of the show, and they put their heart and soul into every single thing they do for the children and it shows.

The Summer Holiday sessions are running until 1st September during the weekdays. There is a different theme each week, so there is no excuse not to pop down!!

Mini Princesses – Rainbow Factory

Any regular readers of the blog will realise that we are HUGE Rainbow Factory supporters. We have been slowly working our way through the “We Are Mini” classes. To read about Mini Heroes follow this link and to read about Mini Einsteins (as at May 2017, no longer running) follow this link. This post is about the Mini Princesses class.

** This class is not being run by the Rainbow Factory at the moment **

Mini-Princesses-Character

The aim of the Mini Princesses classes is to teach the children about how to understand their emotions. Also, to let them use their imagination and generally be better people but being kind and courteous. Just think of it as classes to make them better people both to themselves and others.

While it is called Mini Princesses, in reality, there is nothing gender specific about it. Whilst I have not seen a boy in the class, there is absolutely no reason why boys wouldn’t get as much out of the classes as girls.

So the class is a mixture of movement/dancing, games, crafts and the famous Rainbow Factory story thrown in for good measure. As the class is only an hour long, as you can imagine, the tempo is fast paced. As such, the children are not kept around waiting or stuck doing the same activity.

The classes are probably suited for those between the age of 3 and 8.  Heidi is 3 and for one of the bigger classes, it was good to see her being stretched and challenged by some of the tasks which were aimed at the older children. Any younger than 3 and I feel as though they are not going to cope. This is because they won’t have the concentration or perhaps the ability to understand the concepts being delivered. Because it is aimed at slightly older children, this is perhaps the first class which I have watched from the side rather than take part. This is a very strange feeling indeed!!

A little word about the Fairy Godmother, Emma. As with all of the Rainbow Factory staff, she is always eager to talk to all the children. This involves getting to the child’s height, with so much enthusiasm and always with a smile. As I have said previously, while the classes at the Rainbow Factory are good, it is the staff that make them great.

You may ask why are there no photos. Well, the classes are quite intimate and I felt that taking any would spoil that. Besides, if I took any at the last class, they would just be a blur because Heidi was constantly moving because she was so excited about the class!

Mini Einsteins Update

We have been to  “Mini Einsteins” from the beginning and as the “We are Mini” brand has been launched, I thought that it would be a good idea to do a bit of an Mini Einsteins update. If you want to read a somewhat “serious” experience of our first Mini Einsteins class, you are probably best reading this post (Mini Einsteins – Rainbow Factory)

** This class isn’t being run by the Rainbow Factory at the moment **

However, in a vain attempt to be creative, I thought that I would go all poetic and write about our story so far..

We started in June
going to our favourite science class
We learnt about solids, liquids
and even some gas

20161228_173212.jpg
Homemade lava lamp with Alka Seltzer

At first there was just us two,
and a helper with Professor Ellen
We learnt about vegetables, plants
and fruits such as melon

As the group grew,
so did our knowledge
Some of the topics took me
straight back to college

We learnt some long words,
and learnt to predict
We knew that the lesson plans
had been professionally picked

They learnt why things went up
and why things went down
They learnt what would float
and then what would drown

20161207_084814.jpg
Taking Mini Einsteins knowledge into nursery

The classes were different
in fact they are unique
I think I’m turning Heidi
into a big science geek!

20170102_145005.jpg
Using cabbage juice at home to work out the acidity of items

We have used household items
to blow up balloons
We have used vibrations
to play nifty tunes

20161022_104755.jpg
Vinegar and bicarbonate of soda

We have tested our senses,
our taste, hearing and sight
The children were blindfolded
to see if they could still write

Joining the class was one of
the best things we’ve done
So why don’t you come along
and join in the fun!

While the post is slightly “jokey” – the class is seriously, seriously good, especially if you are wanting to challenge your child a bit and get them interested in science and generally learning. On the back of this, we have really explored both the activities and sought out some good science museums.

It is pitched at the right level for a to 5 year olds (there is an older class as well) and last for an hour, which is more than enough! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and you never know, you might learn a thing or two as well!!

To find out more about Mini Einsteins and the rest of the “We are Mini” classes, go to http://www.wearemini.co.uk/  or check out their Facebook page (search for “We are Mini”) or Twitter site (@wearemini). I hope you enjoyed this Mini Einsteins Update!!

Mini Heroes – 2/1/2017

So the turn of the calendar brings with it a new suite of classes held at the Rainbow Factory – under the “We are Mini” banner. We were invited to the “Mini Heroes” taster session and it was the usual Rainbow Factory creativity, mixed with boatloads of enthusiasm and the key ingredient of learning.

** Class is not currently running **

The Mini Heroes activities are sure to be different each week. However, there was a warm-up exercise and a structured walk through the venue solving a problem. Then the group split into 2 and alternated between a craft activity and a couple of physical activities.

20170102_104809.jpg
Craft time making a mask and shield!

After that, the group came back together to do the structured task – learning how to use the “999” service. Even though Heidi is 3 1/2 years old, I have been hesitant to teach her how to do this, but seeing how she very nearly got the concept today has given me the confidence to carry on teaching her this. Sometimes these activities are more for the parents benefit to show that their child is able to do them. However, the session is only the start of it, as the “lesson” must be carried on at home for it to sink in!!

20170102_111116.jpg
Don’t you hate it when you go to a party and there is someone there with the EXACT same outfit!!

The “learning” themes are focused around First Aid and general life skills. This might seem a bit advanced but at this age, and having seen it in action, it does feel like a perfect time to get started.

While the theme is “Heroes” and staff and children were dressed in all sorts of outfits, there was not one mention by staff of actual superheroes on TV/books. It it was all about what a hero did, and the qualities of a hero. It was good to see the staff not go down the easy or safe route…

20170102_102059.jpg
“Apprentice” Superheroes!

As the theme is “Heroes” it does attract itself to boys more than girls. However, there is absolutely nothing gender specific about the session. So even if your child is not into superheroes, it doesn’t really matter.

One thing to note is that there were around 25 children there (it was Bank Holiday Monday). So if your child likes one to one attention (I have one of them!) it might not be totally for them. However, there were 4 staff taking the session, so it never felt out of control.

20170102_113130.jpg
Strike a pose!

In terms of age ranges, I don’t think any child under 2 1/2 years old would be able to keep up with the activities or take in the information. However, I’m sure the excellent staff would be able to help out if you drop them an email before booking. It did last 1 1/2 hours which was really good for the older ones (and value for money!). However, you might just have to keep an eye out for tiredness if you have a younger one!

The Mini Heroes sessions are to be booked in advance in 6 week blocks, as are the other “We are Mini” activities. Given the popularity of the taster session, I would book quickly! For more information, please check out the “We are Mini” or “Rainbow Factory” Facebook pages. There are other classes within the “We are Mini” banner, which are available via the above pages.

Full Disclosure 1: We were invited to attend Mini Heroes free of charge

Full Disclosure 2: I was the parent of the only child not in fancy dress – I feel like a terrible parent 😂

Cinderella’s Christmas Wish – Review (7/12/2016)

Firstly, there is a special preview post for the show here so feel free to give that a read first, prior to reading the review post, especially if you have never been to or heard of the Rainbow Factory.

Secondly, there are no spoilers whatsoever, so even by reading this, you won’t know what is going to happen, or how it is going to happen – the magic for young and old will certainly be there still!!

Writing a review for anything to do with the Rainbow Factory is so difficult because no matter how creative or spectacular the blog post is, it pales into insignificance compared to the magic they produce, and that magic was in full force for this show!!

20161207_174633.jpg

The first part of the show is what you would expect from Cinderella, setting the scene, introducing the ugly sisters (with a difference!!) and Cinderella. However, after 15 minutes, the story turns from a traditional fairy-tale to a unique Rainbow Factory creation, thanks to the mystery character, played by Lydia Toumazou.

Once this character enters, the audience interaction jumps up a notch, children start to feel the need to shout to help the characters and there is laughter filling the room. This is because the groundwork has been set, and the characters play off each other wonderfully to get to this stage.

The ending is somewhat traditional, but this underlines the fact that you are watching a performance based on Cinderella, but a completely unique performance nonetheless.

wp-1481146874149.jpg

Think of it like a Rainbow Factory sandwich (bear with me…!) Between the start and end of the show, which are based around tradition and fairy tale, there is a middle jam packed with creativity, magic, and laughter – everything that the Rainbow Factory is famous for. Getting this mix right is difficult, but they managed to do it perfectly.

Just a couple of notes to be aware of, given that the performance lasts 40 minutes and there are only two performers, shortcuts have to be taken in the story, but you are in no doubt that you are watching a Cinderella performance. Also, be prepared for slight audience participation if you are (un) lucky to be chosen – thanks Lydia!!!! Nothing to worry about at all, but just thought that I would mention it!!

20161207_184752.jpg
Look at the children mesmerised!

The quality of the performance is of the highest standard, Lydia is the Education Director of the Rainbow Factory and wrote the show and has a First Class degree from Cambridge, as well as 25 years of working in the arts and education industry (which meant that she started when she was 3 I think!). Rachel Abigail Smith is Cinderella and has performed on some of the nation’s biggest stages – this is not an amateur production by any stretch of the imagination.

Speaking of imagination – the performance pushes your imagination, relates to your child’s imagination and as such, develops them further in ways that perhaps no other Christmas show will. The show entertains as well as stimulates and develops them.

20161207_185939.jpg

As a footnote, we got to meet the cast for photos afterwards and I’m sure that this will be a regular thing throughout the show-run, so hang around for pictures and look at the set (hint: look above the fireplace!) However, I mention this because the person to sort this out wasn’t the Communications Manager or one of the other members of staff, it was the Managing Director. This attention to detail and customer care (and child friendly attitude) from everyone involved in the Rainbow Factory makes it one of our favourite places to visit, but also means that this show will be enjoyed by so many people throughout the Christmas period.

Shows are selling out quickly so go to www.rainbowfactorykids.com/christmasshow to get some tickets! Tickets are £6 each (bargain!) and there are a whole host of FAQ’s on their website.

FULL DISCLOSURE: We received 2 complementary tickets to attend the show. However, the thoughts are my own.

Cinderella’s Christmas Wish – Preview

This Christmas, Cinderella finds herself in the most magical place on Earth, the Rainbow Factory, and she is inviting you to watch her Christmas Wish!!

15271864_839187396221739_6353716925996444360_o

If you have never visited the Rainbow Factory before, they turn the most ordinary into the most magical and bring storybooks to life using drama, song mixed with enthusiasm and amazing talents. We have been going regularly for the last 15 months and whatever activity they do, they do so well and so this show will be no exception!

You’re probably thinking that you might go to a “proper” theatre to see a “professional” show as part of the Christmas activities. While they are all well and good, you are probably going to be a fair distance from the stage and the little ones will be wanting to get on their feet and dance or get some sweets, all while you worry about upsetting the people all around you…

Well, this is why you should come to this show if you have young children (age guide 2 – 7). The stage is a few inches above the ground, the seats, well, they are actually beanbags for the kids, right next to the stage – they can touch the characters, they are part of the show. Also, everyone is in same boat, hoping their child doesn’t cause a scene (ok, maybe just me!) so if it does happen, it really doesn’t matter because everyone has been there!!!

And don’t think that because it isn’t set in a formal theatre, it won’t be of excellent quality. One of the stars/scriptwriters is Lydia Toumazou, who has worked on various SEN projects and is a former teacher, and is an absolute star with a brilliant voice with such a bubbly and warm character. Another star/scriptwriter is Rachel Smith who has a degree in Performing Arts and has performed at the Royal Albert Hall. Everything they do at the Rainbow Factory is of brilliant quality and this won’t be an exception.

Tickets are £6 each for both adults and children over 1 year old (under 1’s are free!) and the show lasts about 40 minutes. The Gingerbread Cafe will be open before every performance for you to purchase drinks and treats (always good for a bit of bribery!) but you have to be quick to book as certain shows are sold out already!!

FULL DISCLOSURE: I have received 2 tickets for this show, but you can see in my other Rainbow Factory posts here (https://leedsdad.com/tag/rainbow-factory/) that I am totally in love with the place!!

Mini Einsteins – Rainbow Factory

** This class in not currently being offered by the Rainbow Factory **

An unexpected day off during the week perfectly coincided with the Rainbow Factory holding a day of taster sessions for their 0-5 year old classes that they are starting to put on from June onwards. As Heidi is not attending nursery, preschool or anything like that, I felt as though it was a perfect opportunity to spend the day at ‘Rainbow Factory School’ and see how she would get on.

We signed up for 4 classes: Mini Einsteins, Fantastic Phonics, Music Monkeys and Theatre Tots and while I was fearful that Heidi would flake out after the first 2, I thought that we would go for it!

Our first class was Mini Einsteins and as we entered the Rainbow Factory itself, we saw the mini (cute) lab coats hung up, which was such a nice touch and made it feel a bit more special.

20160524_094936.jpg
Proud to be a scientist!

As it is aimed for 3-5 year olds, I knew Heidi would be a bit stretched (she is 3 next month) but actually, she managed to understand most of what was going on, and more importantly, has learnt and remembered as time has passed.

Heidi is a bit of a scientist anyway (see this post about our visit to a Science Fair) and so I thought that this would be ideal for her – and it was! I don’t want to give any spoilers, but the session was basicially a big science experiment, just like you did at school. Part of me thought that it would be too complex, but perhaps I am doing the kids a bit of a disservice, as they seemed to grasp what was going on.

Even though the class wasn’t marketed as messy, the lab coats were definitely needed and I am  glad that I brought the wet wipes and not the best outfit for the pair of us! However, the experiments were so simple and effective, I know that we will be trying a couple at home at some point. In fact, I have seemingly hammered home the fact that items fall because of gravity!!

20160524_103811.jpg
Testing out gravity

And that is the beauty of this class, the learning only starts in the class, you need to carry it on at home for it to have an effect. Even though I am writing this a week or so after, after a prompt, Heidi remembers the experiments, remembers the outcomes and remembers some of the terminology.

It is a shame that I don’t think that we will be able to attend the classes on a Friday as I know that it would really help Heidi’s development. It just means that I will have to buy a home science kit and try not to ruin the house!!

Rainbow Factory – 4/3/2016

We were invited to attend the “launch” of the new Rainbow Factory theme – Space. With Tim Peake currently on the ISS, this seemed like a perfect time to do it, and of course, RF did it expertly well. Some would say that it was “Out of this world”, but I would never go down the route of a pun filled review…!!

Having said that, the staff are absolute stars (ok, I will stop now!) and as always, they make the day there oh so enjoyable. They are always willing to help the little ones and seem to know what they can and can’t do, whilst stretching them a little bit. They seem to be masters of all things creative, which is somewhat disheartening, seeing how easy they make it!

Anyway, I have done a number of reviews here (Valentines Day event) here (Christmas show) and here (“regular” visit) and so feel free to read my thoughts there. As a result, I thought that I would try my hand and be a little creative, getting inspired from RF…

So we arrived
for a tour about space,
I was so sure
that it would be really ace.

Jordan took us round.
A small group of 5.
The children were so happy,
enthusiastic and alive!

image
Start of the tour

We learnt about the planets,
the moons and the stars.
We learnt that to space travel
we needed rockets, not cars!

image
More learning…

After reading the book,
we finished the tour
We headed to the creative kitchen
after knocking on the door.

image
Now a bit creative…

There we were given sticking
and colouring to do
With plenty of colours
including yellow, pink and blue.

image

Kirsty helped us make
a beautiful, colourful rocket.
It was far too big
to put in our pocket!

image

Bryony and Claire helped
to put on a show.
Even the excited little ones
had a very good go

image

Games and dressing up carried on
throughout the afternoon.
We didn’t want to go home
at all very soon.

image

As the clock approached 4
we knew we had to depart.
Happy for the emotions
we had in our heart.

image
More action on stage

For now Heidi is asleep,
dreaming all about her day.
She would be back tomorrow
if I let her have her way!

Until next time….!!

Rainbow Factory – Romeo Romeo

d82f5d_db9476b976754f45bf778c3529985c0f

Is the Rainbow Factory the coolest place in Leeds to go with young children?!

It must be pretty close, given that they can be creative, learn and be independent whilst having excellent “teaching” by staff, with not a soft play area in sight!

On Valentines’ Day, we headed over to the Rainbow Factory for their Romeo Romeo event, not quite sure what exactly to expect. Rainbow Factory are doing more and more “events” now and this was the first one we had been to (apart from the Christmas Show review here).

We got there in good time as the cafe area filled up with about 30 children and parents before being let into the stage area for the introduction show. The show was short and sweet which meant that the children stayed still and watched before the audience was divided into 4 groups – with each group doing a different activity for 20 minutes or so before rotating round.

wp-1455738211524.jpg
Getting on stage

A quick look round showed that there was 8 or 9 in our group, and Heidi (aged 2 ½) was the youngest, probably by a couple of years. This coupled with the fact that she didn’t have a morning nap sent a shiver down my spine……would MY child be the one to ruin it for the others?!

Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, because of the excellent way that the afternoon was planned out. Each group spent just the right time on the different activities, all of which were completely different, testing and stretching all of the children, be they 2 or 10. The activities included arts, drama, singing/songwriting and the good old fashioned Rainbow Factory tour (with a slight twist).

wp-1455738195412.jpg
Part of the action..

Obviously there were things that Heidi couldn’t do and was a bit shy of doing, but the staff were great at involving her at the right level, without (hopefully!) distracting the older children. To say that the session lasted 2 full/intense hours, all of the children seemed to cope really well, although I think some of the parents were flagging towards the end!

Crafts with a 2 year old is always a challenge and Heidi loved the drama and games, even though she didn’t quite understand the concept of a few of the games!! To my surprise, the songwriting was a bit of a success and seeing her reaction to having her song played on stage was a sight to see. The tour is always excellent, in part because the leader is always enthusiastic and keeps it going at the right pace, even if little hands want to touch the displays!

wp-1455738228427.jpg
Singing on stage…

One of the good things, which might sound like a little thing is that there was a box for the arts/crafts that were made during the day to keep them safe and so you didn’t have to carry them all afternoon. However, as we had just (unexpectedly) started potty training that weekend, there isn’t a potty in the baby changing toilets – and I have never looked for a potty in a toilet previously (I can feel another blog post coming on…!)

Every visit to the Rainbow Factory is different, which is why I feel as though I have to write up every visit (another visit here!)  With a toddler, you know that somewhere is good when they get excited to go and they don’t want to leave. This is the case with us and the Rainbow Factory and I can’t wait for Heidi to be older and be able to appreciate it at a different level and learn more and different things. I just need to find some time off during the week to take her when it it quieter!
