Theatre in Bury St Edmunds hosts half term fun with art and reading workshops

Storytelling Workshops with Lynn Whitehead at Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal.

Storytelling Workshops with Lynn Whitehead at Bury St Edmunds Theatre Royal.

A Bury St Edmunds theatre has been hosting several half term activities this week, with art and literacy on the menu.

The Theatre Royal has been a hive of activity as it hosted workshops and shows keeping youngsters entertained.

The theatre is taking part in the second national Family Arts Festival, offering free activities for families.

These have included storytelling workshops with Lynn Whitehead who told traditional folk stories to her young audience, who had brought along grown-ups too, before encouraging them to make up their own fantastic tales.

Rojo Art welcomed creative children who got stuck into some arts and crafts at the family art workshop.

Director of the theatre, Karen Simpson, also joined in, spending some time with the children at the arts and crafts workshop.

Youngsters looked for faces and characters hidden away in natural objects before developing them into their own storybook characters using different materials. Half term on stage at the theatre included Around The World in 80 Days and The Princess and the Pea. Last year’s Family Arts Festival was the first and it saw 2,000 events held across the UK.
