WHEN I GROW UP, I WANT TO BE... Clown workshop

Saturday 23 July, 14:00 - 15:00

What it is that makes us laugh? How can we be funny? It is not about big shoes, make up and squirty flowers…

Join Mr Mess and his sidekick and learn the essential skills of being a clown.

This practical clown workshop is for all the little aspiring performers who will learn about the pleasure of being ridiculous in a space, about moving from one disaster to the next, about being always happy and optimistic playing before an audience and making them roll around with laughter.

We recommend having double the fun by coming along to the Mr. Mess theatre performance at 12:30. Find out more here.

Parental consent, photography consent and health forms for each under-18 must be submitted no later than 24 hours before the activity.
