Join us from noon – 5pm in Millennium Park, 130 King Street, Peterborough, for an afternoon of free workshops and community conversation!
All materials provided free-of-charge, but if you’re participating in a music workshop, please try to bring your own instrument (large waterjugs make great hand-drums).
Do you find that your toes are tapping and your heart is pounding and everything you see up on stage looks like so much fun that you want to try to? Do you want to connect with other members of the community who have similar interests, and do something creative with your neighbours? We’ve got plenty of opportunities to scratch that itch – red on to find the workshop that works for you!
