West London Arts Scene (WLAS) is setting up an Arts Awards Club at Northolt Leisure Library aimed at eight to 13-year-olds.

WLAS, which incorporates the Ealing Autumn Festival, worked closely with libraries in Ealing earlier this year to roll out a more comprehensive scheme of Arts Award courses.

A programme of daily workshops and reading days at Northolt Leisure Library in August saw more than 1300 children and young people taking part in art and craftwork, games activities, literary and musical events.

A spokesperson for Northolt Leisure Library said: “Everything was amazing especially all the craftwork and artwork, and Charlotte Drane from the Theatre Group Perface Morn playing Roald Dahl's Matilda captivated everyone.”

The new Arts Award Club will take youngsters on to the next stage, Explore Arts Award. Club members will have same choice of activities and will find out more about being an artist and have opportunities to share all the new things they have explored.

The project is funded by the Arts Award Access Fund and WLAS is working with Ealing Libraries and CCS (Cultural Community Solutions) to present the Explore Arts Award.

Full information about joining the Arts Award Club, which starts in January 2017, is available from Northolt Leisure Library (0203 7001080) and West London Arts Scene ( or 020 8567 7623).
