Written Word, spoken word and Performance

This strand of our community learning is for those participants who like to write a little, read a little and perform a little. This is about you being able to tell your story whether that is through improvisation, storytelling around a fire, writing a poem or exploring theatre. You can be at any level for these workshops and there will be a cup of tea for sure. Please read our notes for more information too. 


Wednesday 4th May, 11th May & 18th May from 5pm-8pm
