A rock and roll event will be held on Monday at 10.30am. Participants will learn how to put kicks, flicks, jumps, throws and flips into dance duets.

Then on Tuesday, August 6 at 10.30am, there will be a storytelling course where people can learn how to devise their own stories using games and theatre exercises.

A Mask Theatre event will be held at 1pm on the same day, which involves creating a variety of masks and learning how to develop character and storytelling, using masks and mime.

And on Wednesday, August 7, at 10.30am, there will be a song-writing session, teaching participants how to get creative with words, beats and rhythms, to create a summer anthem and short stories to be sung as songs.

Sessions cost £6 each, £4.80 for concessions, or £30 for all six. Courses are suitable for ages seven to 12. See
