SUMMER FUN 2017

A month of creative and musical activities for children and young people

Wiltshire Music Centre will host a month of creative and musical activities for children and young people throughout the school summer holidays.

This year's programme includes a contemporary dance intensive with award-winning Neon Dance Company (2 - 3 Aug) and Street Theatre, where budding actors will devise a new play in two days (17 - 18 Aug). Young rockers can experience playing in a band at Rock It (31 Jul / 1 Aug) and for aspiring composers and songwriters there's a three-day course where participants will write new music based on a folk tale (14 -16 Aug).

For little ones aged 0-12 months and toddlers, there are workshops with singing, storytelling, crafts and plenty of messy fun. There'll also be screenings of Disney films, including Toy Story and Beauty and the Beast, where audience members are invited to come dressed as their favourite characters.
