Family fun at Quad over Easter break

Family-friendly film screenings and creative sessions for all ages will be on offer at Derby arts centre Quad during the Easter holidays.

Quad has lined up Wreck-It-Ralph (PG) for Cine Kids’film screenings over the Easter break, with daily screenings from March 29-April 11.

Wreck-It-Ralph is a video game villain who longs to be loved and respected as much as his counterpart Fix-It-Felix.

But nobody loves a bad guy. Ralph sets out on a quest to change, unaware that it will bring havoc to the whole arcade where he lives.

Also screening over the holidays, Sammy’s Great Escape (U), features two leather back turtles, Sammy and Ray, who are poached from their waters and whisked away to an aquarium. Big D the seahorse immediately enlists them in a plan to escape their watery prison.

Sammy’s Great Escape screens from April 12-14.

To link in with the Derby-wide FORMAT International Photography Festival, there are two FORMAT13 Family Activities, Funky Albums and Black & White Paper Sculpture, suitable for all ages.

Create Funky Albums to store your photographs in or use as a pictorial diary on Saturday, April 6, from 1.30pm-3.30pm; or create amazing factory themed landscapes using simple cutting and folding techniques in Black & White Paper Sculpture on Saturday, April 13, from 1.30pm-3.30pm.
