Family Activities

Colour, create, design and weave - here are a range of family activities to keep your family busy.

Follow the elephant

Visitors to our brand new family musical, The Magician's Elephant, in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre can pick up a show programme to follow a trail that will allow you to make your very own 3D elephant. Now you can also conjure up a 3D model at home with our Follow the Elephant PDF, or have fun colouring our The Magician's Elephant colouring sheets

Print out and decorate the shapes, slot them together according to the instructions, then share your magical creations with us @theRSC on Twitter or Instagram.

About the show

Stratford Christmas Window Trail

A festive town project to celebrate the people and businesses of Stratford-upon-Avon

Follow the elephant through town as you discover 24 unique and surprising window displays created in partnership with local shops, community groups and independent businesses based in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre. Inspired by our winter production, The Magician's Elephant, you can look for an elephant in every window.
