The Playhouse Children’s &Youth Arts Festival 2013 Monday 22nd July 2013 to Friday 2nd August 2013

N.Ireland's longest running Children's and Youth Arts Festival is back again this summer and celebrating its 21st Birthday. We would love to invite everyone from the age of 4 - 16 to celebrate with us!

Anyone who's been before will remember the exciting and fun activities on offer, and this year, we're going to make it even bigger and better, because we have another reason to celebrate as 2013 UK City of Culture!

The festival will be divided into three age categories; from 4-6 year olds, 7-12 years old and our teen's group ranging from 13-16 and will include Visual Art, Drama, Dance and a few surprises still to be announced. Teens will also be treated to classes in Special Effects, Stage Make up, Animation, Social Networking and Journalism with the BBC!

For the two-week masterclasses, a team of the best qualified facilitators will provide a wide and colourful variety of fun workshops that are sure to entertain and educate!
