This July school holidays City Gallery Wellington welcomes you back, with a return to Holiday Movies for Kids programme.

We kick off our week with two terrific films based on the much-loved picture books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.


Room on the Broom | UK, Max Lang & Jan Lachauer; 2012, 27 min. G

A kind witch ignores the concerns of her long-suffering companion, a wonderful Cat, and invites more and more animals to join them on her broom. But how will the gang overcome the fearsome Dragon whose favourite dinner is Witch and chips? Starring Simon Pegg, Gillian Anderson, Rob Brydon, Timothy Spall, Martin Clunes, Sally Hawkins and David Walliams.


Stickman | UK, Max Jeroen Jaspaert & Daniel Snaddon; 2015, 27 min. G

A happy go lucky father's epic journey to make it home in time for Christmas, with a little help from Santa. Stick Man's enduring efforts against setbacks will make sure that there is not a dry eye in the house!
