Posted by mjs76 at Oct 25, 2012 10:07 AM |
Limited places still available on Saturday morning children’s puppet course, starting this week.

This Saturday, the University’s arts centre Embrace Arts kicks off a six-week puppetry course for children. Expert puppeteers will help the youngsters to make and operate their own puppets, creating for Leicester a unique ‘Children’s Puppet Company’ of talented performers. The course is run in conjunction with the Spark Children’s Arts Festival.

Places are still available on the course which is open to children of all abilities, aged 8-12 and follows a very successful two-day puppetry summer school. No previous experience is required.

The course runs from 27 October to 1 December 2012, 9.30am-11.30am, and costs just £30. To book, call in at Embrace Arts on Lancaster Road or contact the box office on 0116 252 2455 or
