Notnow Collective offers a truly unique workshop aimed at parents and their children! Have a very special day together!

Come and learn some pro stage combat moves: secrets of grotty unarmed combat and the skill of sword combat (foam swords provided!). Whether you are into gladiators, knights or ninja, we will teach you the moves and how to make it look dangerous, whilst keeping yourself and your fighting partner safe.

The workshop is intergenerational: it is aimed at the whole family but specifically targeting fathers and their kids aged 7+. We are happy to accommodate babies as well, whether in the pushchair or in the sling.

This fantastic skill is guaranteed to provide hours and hours of endless fun and pretty amazing display for the rest of the family. Bond with your child in an active and a creative way, whilst spending quality time together with plenty of laughter and learning through fun. Our workshop leaders and assistants are professional performers trained in stage combat, experienced in working with both children and adults.  They are also parents and have first-hand experience of how much play fun stage combat can be.

The workshop is 2 hrs long with breaks. We provide all the necessary materials. Any level of fitness welcome, come dressed in loose clothes and ready to play!

This workshop is a part of research and development for Notnow Collective’s  new show DadMan: The Bath-time Warrior exploring the realities of modern fatherhood and 21st century manhood.
