Free Dr Seuss event at White Rose

White Rose kicks off Easter holidays with free Dr. Seuss-inspired event

  • Leeds Young Film and Sneaky Experience come to White Rose Shopping Centre 1-2 April to celebrate the 18th Leeds Young Film Festival
  • Exclusive 50% off Family Tickets for headline event at Leeds Town Hall available to White Rose shoppers

A sneaky surprise awaits families at White Rose Shopping Centre this weekend with free family activities inspired by Dr Seuss take over the first weekend of the Easter Holidays (1–2 April 2017).

The ‘Cheeky Sneakies’ will be holding a free SUPERCOOL RHYME-SCHOOL & MASTER-RHYME CHALLENGE at White Rose, where children can compete for the top place on the leaderboard by taking on short challenges inspired by Seuss, the author of classics including The Cat in the Hat and Horton Hears a Hoo. All participants will have the opportunity to take a Seussy Selfie with the Cheeky Sneakies, and will be able to find out more about the Seuss-themed Easter Eggstravaganza coming to Leeds Town Hall on Easter Weekend.

The activity, hosted by Leeds-based ‘experiential theatre’ company Sneaky Experience, acts as a teaser for the 18th Leeds Young Film Festival, taking place 10 – 20 April at venues across Leeds. The centrepiece will be the Dr Seuss-inspired Easter Eggstravaganza at Leeds Town Hall over Easter weekend 14 – 17 April, where the Cheeky Sneakies will be joined by the Egg with Legs, the Unicorn with the Flugelhorn and more zany characters to  take audiences on an immersive theatrical egg trail, featuring rhyming workshops, interactive storytelling, a Seuss-inspired Sing-a-Long, and the chance to win a gigantic Easter Egg. As part of the adventure, audiences will see themselves transformed into a Seuss-inspired character in their very own film with our magic green screen.

White Rose visitors will also be able to claim 50% off Family Passes to the Easter Eggstravagnza via a discount code available from the Cheeky Sneakies, who will be stationed in the Central Atrium from 10am – 5pm Saturday 1 April, and 11 – 5pm on Sunday 2 April.

More than 11,000 young people and their families are expected at the Festival, presented by Leeds City Council with funding from the British Film Institute and Arts Council England.
