Mechanics Show Types banner

Burnley Mechanics is proud to present a series of shows and performances, introducing children to the magical world of theatre. This season Burnley Mechanics welcome a vast array of family friendly shows and entertainment to its stage.

Many of our theatre shows aimed at young children can be seen on weekday’s during the day, making them an ideal choice for school and nursery school trips. Shows aimed at young children are an appropriate length and often include an interval. Some shows also include key themes like teamwork, friendship building and co-operation – helping children to learn as they watch.

There’s a Ben & Jerry’s Ice-cream bar on site for an extra special treat and special discounts for groups of ten or more available from the box office.
