Presented by Comedy Club 4 Kids & Simple Politics

"Politics is boring. Politics is complicated. Politics is for adults."
Rubbish! Politics is actually super important and can be made really fun, if you know how.

Luckily Tatton Spiller (Simple Politics) and Tiernan Douieb (Comedy Club 4 Kids, CBBC’s The Slammer) know exactly how and will show you over 60 minutes just how to make sense of it all.
You might not be able to vote yet. You do have opinions, though. You know the world you want to see. You know what’s right and what’s wrong. Also, you want to have fun.

Comedy Club 4 Kids specialise in making children laugh & Simple Politics specialise in making them understand how politics works in a clear, informative and fun way.

So they have teamed up for a show that keeps you entertained, engaged and informed so you can also shout at the telly along with your parents during Question Time.

Children must have a valid ticket and be accompanied by an adult at all times. Children under the recommended age may be admitted but will still require a child’s ticket. Baby on lap tickets (£1) are available on selected shows for 0-18months.  Age ranges are provided as a guide and we ask you to consider whether a show is suitable for your child. For further information please contact our Ticket & Information Team on 01227 769075 who will be happy to help.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
