Maybe dive head-first into the world of teen-spy Alex Rider with author Anthony Horowitz; fairy tales come to life at Drag Queen Story Time and discover the beauty of dance through contemporary ballet Giselle.
Fans of Alex Rider can join best-selling author Anthony Horowitz as he shares what inspired him to write the famous undercover character.
The successful series of books and graphic novels was adapted into a film in 2006 and is about to come to TV screens soon.
Horowitz has written over forty books and is one of the UK's most prolific writers.
At Brighton Dome he will be in conversation with Brighton-based author Elly Griffiths, reading excerpts from Alex Rider: Secret Weapons and signing copies of the book.
Following a successful run at Sadler's Wells, acclaimed South African choreographer and dancer, Dada Masilo presents her fearless re-imagining of the iconic tale Giselle.
Suitable for children aged twelve and above, the energetic performance follows the story of a young girl dealing with romantic heartbreak.
Masilo brings a modern interpretation that combines ballet with both contemporary and traditional African dance styles.
Budding dancers aged sixteen plus, with some experience of performing, are being given the unique opportunity to learn from Dada Masilo's dance company.
Members of The Dance Factory Johannesburg will teach a class in Masilo's style. Participants will also get a special discount on tickets to the show.
