Can you help the Boxville engineers gather the materials they need to help save BOXVILLE?!

Join Sam Wilde and Ian Nicholson (I Want My Hat Back Trilogy) on their next cardboard adventure. Work with the BOXVILLE engineers to craft-a-long and build your way through the story, meeting paper dragons, corrugated pirates and cardboard space robots in this stem skilled, hands on, interactive, time travel adventure!

Recommended for children aged 4-8 and their families.

Boxville workshops and shows will take place in Hillsborough Park – the exact location will be communicated with bookers in advance. Please note the activity will likely take place outdoors, so we recommend dressing for the weather! You are welcome to bring picnic blankets and folding chairs.

We aim to be an inclusive and intergenerational organisation, so accessibility is very important to us. If you are nervous about attending a session for the first time, we can arrange a pre-meet or call. You can find other access information about each of the spaces we work in, as well as our access statement, at For enquires please contact or call 0114 327 1670.
