FREE ARTS WORKSHOPS
We're delighted to be offering an exciting line-up of free arts workshops for people of all ages. This will give hundreds of people fully-immersive involvement in the arts in ways that they would not otherwise ever experience. Through these workshops, 60 children will perform as part of our show 'Wight at the Musicals' on the Saturday night, plus we will be running drumming workshops (STOMP-style, samba and bamboo tamboo) and introducing comedy workshops to the Wight Proms for the first time!
