Rainbow Factory

Rainbow Factory


The only attraction of its kind in the north, the Rainbow Factory is a creative arts play centre that brings children's books to life through theatre, music and craft - staging unique events that inspire, challenge and delight the under-10s.

When it comes to finding creative family entertainment during the school holidays, this is the place to be!

Previous events include Alice's Easter Adventure, Harry Potter Book Night, Roald Dahl Day and Mini CSI Day.

Bring tiny tots for Messy Play on Mondays, get little ones interested in science with Mini Einsteins sessions, hold a magical Rainbow Factory Birthday Party or ask your child's school to book an unforgettable school trip there.
