The Enchanted Cinema’s Day of Live Interactive Cinema

29th May 2023 @ 2:00pm 5:30pm

£10.50 – matinee. £10.50 – evening (Red Turtle)

The Enchanted Cinema Family FX Workshop + Performance (2pm Doors)

“Thanks so much for a truly amazing show – I absolutely love what you do. It’s just so unique and in a world of CGI and flashy 3D animation, the beautiful, textual, thought provoking world you opened the children up to was very special and memorable.”


Join The Enchanted Cinema on a live cinema adventure with Studio Ghibli & Friends. Using your hands, your voice & instruments including xylophones, join the “FX Crew” to create sound FX to scenes from animated films by Studio Ghibli and Yuri Norstein’s heart-warming Hedgehog in the Fog, inspiration for Studio Ghibli’s director, Hayao Miyazaki and rated one of the best animations of all time. You’ll become the sound of an owl, a snail, tree-frogs, cicadas, the strange purring rumble of a “cat bus” or even a tree-ghost created using 6ft bamboo canes. Meanwhile, others will work with multi-instrumentalist Gareth Wilkins to create an atmospheric xylophone score for scenes including the hedgehog descending into the fog.

Studio Ghibli’s The Red Turtle with Live FX Workshop (5.30pm Doors)

Live cinema performers Gareth Wilkins (harp, piano, aquaphone) and Kieron Chissik (guitar, viola) invite you to become the sound of an island forest, scuttling beach creatures and seabirds using your voice or instruments provided by them in a workshop inspired by Studio Ghibli’s The Red Turtle, before enjoying this stunning animation.

“This wordless animated fable follows the fortunes of a shipwrecked man on an island – and it’s a masterpiece.”
