Puppet Theatre Week – Arts Award Summer School Explore Level

Magical Circus is now an Arts Award Centre with a qualified adviser.

This summer holidays your child can have fun while working towards achieving their Explore Level Award if they are 9 – 15 years of age.

Arts Award is a recognized qualification and can be used towards UCAS.

We are offering three different themes with a range of artistic skills to work towards achieving their award.

  • Week 1 – Monday 6th – Friday 10th August 2018, 9.30 – 3.30pm – Circus Show
  • Week 2 – Monday 13th – Friday 17th August 2018, 9.30 – 3.30pm – Zombie Play
  • Week 3 – Monday 20th – Friday 24th August 2018, 9.30 – 3.30pm – Fairytale Puppet Theatre

The cost is £150.00 per child for the 5 day course. All props and equipment are supplied and included. Children must attend the full five day course in order to achieve the award in addition to approximately 10 hours input of their own time. The children will need to produce a log book during the week, so they will need to do some research and produce written work as well as the creative and performance element of the arts focused on.

Each course will conclude with a live performance, followed by an informal chat to which one adult, family member must be able to attend.
