Schoolchildren from across the county will be joining in the fun at this year’s Out There International Festival of Circus and Street Arts in Great Yarmouth.
Now in its seventh year, Out There has established itself as one of the country’s leading circus and street arts events and features a programme of some of the world’s top international performers.
Seachange’s venue, the Drill House, will host two days of creative sessions for schoolchildren aged eight years and above.
“This year’s festival promises, not only our largest international programme to date, but also local participation on a scale we’ve not had before,” said Siobhan Johnson of Seachange.
“Young people are at the heart of much of our work and these sessions will allow schoolchildren to both see and create some great festival work.”
Participants will be able to enjoy shows from two of the UK’s leading street arts companies: Le Navet Bete present Rumpus, a show packed full of physical comedy, clowning and audience interaction, while Southpaw Dance, a hip-hop theatre company, presents a showcase of energetic dance-theatre work.
There will also be the chance to work with French street arts troupe, Les Cubiténistes.
The company are in residence in Yarmouth for two weeks prior to the festival and will work with pupils to create décor and signage for the festival park. The sessions are free and take place on September 15 and 16.
The Out There Festival takes place from September 17-21 in St George’s Park, Yarmouth, and the surrounding areas.
