    Is your child aged 7-11? At Create, we’re hosting weekly art workshops designed for young people to have fun and get creative through art-based activities.

     

    Held in our state of the art Visual Art and Design Centre and run by professional tutors, children are invited to take part in a range of activities using a wide spectrum of creative processes. Within the sessions, children can try printmaking, ceramics, life drawing, painting, textiles, sewing and 3D modelling.

     

    Saturday Art Workshops run in 10-week blocks, with three opportunities to join across the academic year. Classes are held 10am-12pm on Saturdays. Parents are encouraged to attend a few sessions to help their child settle in, but we do encourage young people to make friends within the group and attend independently.

  • Antigone

    Thursday 14th June 2018 7pm

    £4 All Tickets

    Two brothers dead. Two sisters mourning.

     


    A decree has been made by King Creon. Eteocles will be given funeral rites and buried with full military honours but his brother Polynices will remain unburied on the battlefield and left for the scavangers to feast on. The passing of this law sets in motion a chain of events that leads to the most tragic end. A family feud of the worst kind. A battle of the sexes. Antigone tells the story of one woman’s fight to take on the state and right a wrong. Can there be any winners?

     

    VWNC Performing Arts students present this retelling of Sophocles' classic play.

    Monday 18th June 2018 7pm

    Max is a prolific producer – even though his shows are always awful, they attract attention and anyone who is anyone on Broadway starts off in one of his productions. He's just announced a set of open auditions for his latest show – he is looking for a new star!

     

    Opening Night is a musical theatre revue-style performance that follows a selection of aspiring actors/dancers/musical theatre performers from across America (and further) all desperate to make a career on Broadway.

     

    VWNC Musical Theatre students present this as their final showcase performance of the year. Including well-known songs from a whole host of musicals, this is one not to be missed!

  • A Laughing Matter

    Wednesday 20th June 2018, 7pm

    £5

    A Laughing Matter by April De Angelis.

    It’s 1773 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The crowd is getting restless. The leading man’s unconscious but the show must go on.

    This irreverent version of real-life events tells the story of David Garrick, Dr Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith and a new play called She Stoops to Conquer. Caught between financial pressure and artistic ambition, Garrick must decide if he can risk staging a play which could make or break his career.

    A Laughing Matter was produced Out of Joint and the Royal National Theatre, London. Following its premiere at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford, in October 2002, it transferred to the National in November and returned in February 2003.

    This amateur production of "A Laughing Matter" is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
