Arthur Christmas, with gift box workshop
“No one gets an unwrapped present on MY watch!”
Arthur Christmas is a star-studded animated classic with James McAvoy taking the lead alongside Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent and Bill Nighy in a caper across the world to deliver a present to a child that’s been missed. Will they make it before Christmas morning?
The pre-film workshop is a great opportunity to get ahead on your present wrapping. Come and create beautiful gift boxes and gift tags with Makendoo using card, ribbon, vibrant colours and loads of biodegradable glitter. Suitable for all ages.
Presented by the Royal Docks in partnership with the Asta Community Hub.
