Become a Superhero during the May half-term holidays!

Barton upon Humber based children’s arts charity ST-ART has put together a programme of workshops based on the live theatre performance, Superhero Snailboy, that it is staging at the beginning of the programme.

ST-ART project co-ordinator Janine Knight said the week’s activities would follow the theme of the play Superhero Snail Boy, which was being performed twice by Scribbled Thought Theatre on Tuesday, May 27.

“After the live theatre, which will be staged at 11am and 2pm, the artist-led workshops that are being held in Barton, Barrow upon Humber, Broughton and Scunthorpe will all continue the Superhero theme,” she said.

“The Ropewalk in Barton and the Village Hall in Barrow will host a workshop creating a superhero with special powers out of milk bottles, newspaper and tights while the workshops at Broughton Village Hall and Westcliff Youth Centre in Scunthorpe will host workshops making superhero mask, cape and cuffs,” she went on.

The workshops run from Wednesday, May 28 until Friday, May 30, and cost £1 for each session.  All but the Scunthorpe workshops can be booked by calling 01652 660380 while to book a workshop at the Westcliff Youth Centre contact Jo on 01724 861565.
