It’s a case of roll up, roll up for workshops

A series of circus workshops for young people are taking place in Alnwick later this month.

As part of the BBC Performing Arts Fund, which saw the Playhouse host a night of theatre and film curated by youngsters in March, a group will get the chance to learn skills from one of the North East’s most respected performers, Bell & Bullock.

The three workshops deal with stilt-walking and unicycling; juggling, diablo, plate-spinning and devil sticks; and acro-balance.

They take place during the school Easter holidays on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, April 15, 16 and 17, from 10am to 4pm.

Suitable for ages 13 to 19, the workshops are free, but refundable deposits of £5 are taken when booking and returned after the end of the workshop.
