We promote the arts in and around Devon, primarily by running workshops where members of the public can work alongside arts professionals to create their own works of art. This can be as individuals or in groups. Usually we stage events open to the public at the end of each set of workshops to provide the participants the chance to display their work.

Children at a loose end this Easter holiday?

Roll up, roll up and perform in South Zeal’s Spectacular Hocktide Circus Revels.

Organised by the Sticklepath Fireshow charity - holding creative events for children in our community. Following on from the hugely successful activity workshops held last Easter, they’re back again with a circus theme this year.

This Easter holidays, children aged 7 to 16 are invited to join Fireshow's 'Hocktide Revels' for three days of Circus workshops in the Victory Hall, South Zeal.

Learn new skills including Juggling, Unicycling, Diabolo and Tightrope walking. Bringing the techniques together into some splendid routines, the workshops will culminate in a super circus skills show on the Friday evening to show off the newly honed tricks to friends, family and all who want to come.

Circus tutors Steve Eldridge and Ben Cornish from 'Circus into Schools' will be bringing all kinds of balance and manipulation skills and equipment for children to practise with.

The Fireshow team will raid the costume store for clown trousers and sparkles and supervise children during workshops and at lunchtime. Workshops – Wednesday to Friday April 5th to7th 10am to 4pm.
Cost £30 (sibling discounts available).

Pre-booking essential.

Crafty Capers 2016 - A success!

36 children came and made things with their parents, childminders or volunteers.

The busiest session was Friday morning with a whopping 24 kids, 7 parents and 4 volunteers.

We always had at least 4 volunteers/workshop leaders.

The children came from 8 different villages or towns.  The age range was 8 months to 16 years.

The finale show was well attended - a rough head count was around 30 in the audience, plus judges(3), team(5) and 16 performers.

All this without accident or injury!  Well done to all.
