medway-logoThe February half-term holiday is approaching and there are plenty of fun activities on offer in Medway to keep the children entertained.

Fans of pop boyband One Direction will jump at the chance to learn a great dance routine to some of their greatest hits.

Those aged between eight and 16 – who fancy following in the footsteps of their favourite band members – can put on their dancing shoes and take part in a special workshop at The Brook Theatre in Chatham.

The workshop on Tuesday, 18 February is with professional dancer Jay Saunders who will teach the young people a choreographed routine and a variety of dance skills.

There will even be a final performance for family and friends where children can showcase the moves they have learnt at the end of the day.

The workshop takes place from 10am to 3.30pm and costs £14 for each participant.

Children can also get creative and learn some magic with a professional circus company at the Balloon Art and Magic Tricks workshop.

On Monday, 17 February, tutor Mighty Mike of Dizzy O’ Dare Presents will teach those aged between eight and 14 how to make amazing balloon models and perform marvellous magic tricks.

The session will begin with fun warm up games and demonstrations, followed by activities where the children will work in small groups with one-to-one help from the workshop assistants.

Each child will take home some new skills as well as their very own pack of playing cards to try their tricks on family and friends.

The workshop takes place from 10am until noon at The Brook Theatre in Chatham and costs £7.
On another date at the same theatre, youngsters interested in arts and crafts can get messy designing ceramics and printing pictures with artist Friday Caswell.

Using special tile-cutting tools, rollers and inks – those who attend the workshop on Friday 21 February, will get to make unique printed pictures as well as paint designs on mugs, plates and tiles.

Caswell will showcase some examples of her work and talk about the different techniques and equipment the group will be using throughout the day. She will then help the children with their ideas and creation of their artwork.

The workshop runs from 10am to 3.30pm for eight to 14-year-olds of all abilities and costs £14.

All materials – including the china items – are supplied and included in the price of the workshop. Children are asked to wear old clothes and an apron if they have one.
