A Cardboard Adventures Production!

Join Designer Sam Wilde and Director Ian Nicholson (I Want My Hat Back Trilogy) on their next cardboard adventure.

Using their trademark sustainable cardboard puppet style explore BOXVILLE, a land made entirely from sustainable cardboard!

Work with the BOXVILLE engineers to craft-a-long with the story and build your own way through the tasks and trials of BOXVILLE, earning everything you need to become a fully fledged cardboard engineer!

You will meet paper dragons, corrugated crabs and cardboard space robots in this STEM skilled, hands on, interactive, cardboard adventure!

Aimed at ages 4-8 and their grown-ups.

All cardboard creations can be taken home at the end of the show.

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
