Comic masterclass for summer holidays

This summer, keep your children occupied with a wide range of fantastic workshops and activities at The Lights, Andover.


Whether your children love music, dancing, art, storytelling or drama there is something for them at The Lights this summer holiday. Workshops are running between 26th July and 28th August.


The ever-popular ‘play in a day’ is on Monday, 6th August from 10am – 3pm for ages 5-7 with We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. This physical theatre workshop brings the classic storybook to life, with a performance at the end of the day for friends and family.


For children aged 7 up to early teens who love art, why not book them in for a Comic Art Masterclass on Tuesday, 28th August at 10am or 1.30pm, run by Kev F Sutherland (pictured), who writes and draws for The Beano, Doctor Who and Marvel Comics. Everyone goes away with a comic strip and an individual caricature at the end of the workshop.


There is so much more to explore over the holidays too, with Disneymania dance workshop with tutor Lauren, The Enormous Turnip, The Wheels on the Bus and Clancy the Clumsy Lizard storytelling workshops. Creative children can enjoy Mini Mosaics for ages 5-7 and Driftwood Creations for ages 8-12 – both on 31st July.


Full information about all these workshops and more can be found at www.thelights.org.uk Many of the workshops are already selling fast, so please book early to avoid disappointment.


For an extra special treat The Lights has a beautiful piece of family theatre from The Makeshift Ensemble and their travelling teapot of tales, in town on Wednesday 25th July at 1.30pm with the tale of The Children in the Moon. For tickets, call 01264 368368.
