Called The Marlowe Diddies, these sessions are described as the perfect introduction to theatre. The parent and child group is for aiding development, social skills and confidence and is aimed at children aged two to four.

Anna Cahill’s four-year-old daughter is a member of the Diddies, and says she love it.She said: “She has loads of energy and this is the first group I've found that can keep up with her. "Class leaders Jo and Grace are wonderful with the kids."

The sessions take place every Wednesday in term time between 10 and ?11am at The Marlowe Kit in Stour Street, Canterbury.

Places are limited and can booked online at or by calling The Marlowe’s Box Office on 01227 787787.
