Come and visit Moonie’s Magical Sweet Shop and discover for yourself a world of endless possibilities!
During our week-long summer holiday workshops in Newark-on-Trent you will create and produce your very own film, while having plenty of other fun activities along the way! You will also learn a little about how a film studio works and what goes on behind the cameras. No previous Acting experience is required and, if Acting’s not your thing, then don’t worry, as there are plenty of behind-the-scenes roles to fill too!
The filming takes place in front of the rather magical green screen - as used in many Hollywood blockbuster films - which allows you to use filming 'locations' that are limited only by your imagination! Another firm favourite is our clapperboard, which the children absolutely love to use.
You will be able to purchase a DVD of the film, for you to treasure and share with your Family & Friends, for only £8 (including post & packaging).
There will be a lot of post-production work (editing the footage etc.) for us to complete once both workshops have finished, so it could be up to two months before the DVDs will be available. However, they'll be well worth the wait! We'll let you know as soon as they are ready.
For Early Booking discounts available on DVDs, please see below.

How much is it?
The cost of the five-day workshop is £59. We ask that you pay a deposit of £29 (non-refundable if you cancel) when you book your place, with the balance payable one week before the start of your chosen workshop. Of course, if you wish, you can also pay the full amount at once.
If you have more than one child coming, we offer a discount of £5 for each additional Brother or Sister, which will be deducted from your deposit.
Early booking discount
If you book your place and pay your deposit by the 21st July you'll be able to buy one copy of your DVD of the film for half price (only £4 instead of £8). This half price DVD offer applies to each of your children attending.
What do I need to bring/wear?
There will be a break for a picnic lunch in the middle of each day so please provide your child with a packed lunch. With regard to clothing, all that we ask is that you wear soft shoes in order to minimize noise during filming and, because of the green screen process, don't wear anything green/turquiose! Depending upon what character you are playing in the film, you may need to bring appropriate clothing later in the week. Don't worry however, we won't be asking you to provide elaborate costumes!
The children love visiting this during break times to treat themselves with their pocket-money to an assortment of yummy treats! All are suitable for vegetarians. There will also be a selection of pens, pencils and other fun goodies at affordable prices!
If you're looking for great summer holiday activities for children in Nottinghamshire we really hope that you will be able to come along to one of our workshops as we are sure that your child will enjoy themselves and learn lots in the process. We look forward to hopefully seeing you soon!
