The relaxed screening will be perfect for young children as the lights will remain dimmed, the music will be lowered and they will be free to move around.

Booking is essential and anyone interested should visit The Exchange 1856 website to reserve a space.

‘Trolls The Band Together’ is a U Certificate with a running time of 92 minutes. The film is still showing in many local cinemas, making this free performance even more of a special treat.

Managing director at The Exchange 1856, Stuart Egan, said: “We know it can be expensive to keep children occupied during school holidays, especially if the weather is bad, so we thought a cinema experience is a great way to help local families during this time.

“We have a wonderful space here in North Shields and we want the local community to feel very much a part of it. That’s why we’re hosting this free screening and would encourage families to come along and enjoy a great film in a great venue, no purchase necessary.”

 The venue is also running two family-friendly live performances during half-term: The Boy and The Seahorse and The Toys are Back in Town which promise to entertain children of all ages.
