What's On at Move

Spectacular live shows, interactive workshops and sporting challenges, so get stuck in!

All activities are included in your ticket, but some may be very popular so get there early to avoid disappointment.

Our café will serve food until 9.45pm so please be sure to get there in good time if you need to refuel.
