Family Creativity Day in Chester
Posted on June 29, 2010
Join us for our next popular Family Creativity Day this coming Sunday 4 July at Queen’s School in Chester.
|This is a hands-on musical event, led by professional musicians and is a fantastic opportunity for children and their parents, guardians or grandparents to compose music, make costumes and act.
Create your very own masked comedies based on the Renaissance stories that inspired Punch and Judy.
No experience is required – you just need enthusiasm and energy, and there’ll be a free performance by all participants at 2.30pm on the stage.
Family and friends who are not already taking part are invited to come along and watch.
The day will include:
A hands-on craft workshop where you will make props, costumes and sets for the final performance.
A music workshop in which you can have a go on a huge range of percussion, from sleigh bells through to exotic African and Asian instruments, creating a soundtrack for your drama.
A drama session with a storyteller. Everyone gets involved to create a script and act out the story.
Children must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Most suitable for children aged between 7 – 11 years but other ages are welcome.
Adults £5.00 Children £3.00.
Places are limited so we recommend you book early. Entry for the final performance at 2:30pm is free, but you’ll need to book a ticket through the box office.
Top tip for mums and dads: there will be a short break for lunch, so bring along some snacks and a drink.
