Free Arts Workshops

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 over 200 people fully-immersive involvement in the arts in ways that they would not otherwise ever experience. Through these workshops, 60 kids will perform as part of our show 'Wight at the Musicals' on the Saturday night. Also, our associated charity Independent Arts will have a presence throughout the festival, so you can find out more about the incredible work they do.

MUSICAL THEATRE

WORKSHOPS

THURSDAY 16 AUGUST

The aim of this workshop is to inspire the next generation of budding young performers, by transporting them into the world of musical theatre. Those involved will learn a song (from a musical currently showing in London's West End) during this workshop, which will involve singing and dancing. They will then perform the song at 'Wight at the Musicals' on 18th August as part of The Wight Proms.
