It’s nearly that time again, these holidays do seem to come around so quick (perhaps not quick enough for our mumbler teachers!). Filling the time can be hard, as can finding new and exciting things to do, while watching those pennies. Here at STAG, we thought we’d try and help make it a little easier for you and offer you some inspiration.
Check out our STAG Mumbler – Summer Holidays Special
It’s never too late to tell us about great local events, clubs or groups. So if you’re heading somewhere great this Summer, do let us know about it at email@example.com and we’ll make sure we add it for other mumblers to see.

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.
Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.

Elmer The Patchwork Elephant Show tells the tale of an elephant that stands out – both with his patchwork-coloured skin and his sense of humour – but ultimately realizing that his friends have always valued his unique characteristics.
Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show will be brought to life on stage by Selladoor Family, the producers behind James And The Giant Peach, Seussical , The Owl And The Pussycat, Guess How Much I Love You and Madagascar the Musical; and MEI Theatrical, producers of family entertainment across Asia and the Middle East and The Very Hungry Caterpillar show and Sarah and Duck’s Big Top Birthday in the UK.
Alex Parker, Lead Producer for Selladoor adds “We are thrilled to be bringing this much-loved character to life alongside the important stories that Elmer represents. Expect puppetry, colour and a trunk-load of fun!”
The show’s subtle message that it is always best to be yourself, combined with the vibrant colour and cheeky humour of the main character, makes Elmer a great show for children of all ages. A celebration of individuality and the power of laughter!
