A six part postcard adventure for children and families
An original Christmas gift for 5-11 year olds, providing hours of entertainment in the New Year!

When puzzling postcards start arriving through your letterbox asking for help, only you can crack the code and figure out who the mystery writer is.

Following a successful postcard drama format, Nottingham's famous Goose Fair inspired our latest series, Fair Play, is a six-part postcard adventure for families with children aged 5-11 to enjoy together.

Each card contains a secret code to crack, a mystery letter to help detect the writer of the cards, plus a QR code on each postcard to download with an activity sheet to explore a variety of fun creative challenges!

For families, places cost £12.50 per name and address to receive this drama told across six postcards (£26 for Europe/Worldwide delivery) please enter your full name, UK address and postcode to take part. If you would like to arrange this as a gift or purchase for more than one address you can do this as part of the booking process. Booking closes on 20 March 2022.

For schools a special package costing from £125 includes a teacher PDF and PowerPoint pack including the 6 postcards and an activity sheet to accompany each card, plus 30 sets of the six postcards for teachers to create a lesson plan and explore in the classroom. Additional cards can be added at £3.50 per set.
As a gift ticket, we will match your donation with a lucky recipient who will receive our six part postcard adventure, discover the mystery sender and explore range of creative activities!

Please note: this is NOT a live performance.

The postcards will be mailed weekly from 2 April 2022 and all cards received within a six week period; overseas mailings may take slightly longer (postal service permitting).
Schools packages will be sent out from 30 March 2022, including an accomanying teacher PDF and PowerPoint pack.

Fair Play is made possible with generous support from the Peter Sowerby Foundation's Increasing Access Fund.
