Ealing Autumn Festival Continues With Arts Workshops
Plus the launch of the Roald Dahl Big Quiz
Ealing Autumn Festival is celebrating the summer holidays with a programme of arts workshops and reading days and the launch of the Roald Dahl Big Quiz.
The free events are part of the festival’s Truth and Reconciliation exhibition, with a special reference to Shakespeare in the playwright’s 400 th year, which is touring libraries across the borough this year.
Northolt Leisure Centre Library is the venue for the painting exhibition’s next port of call and the summer courses will run alongside from Saturday, August 6 until September 1.
The Roald Dahl Big Quiz will also form part of the Summer Reading Challenge, and volunteer readers will read and listen to groups who are looking for answers to the quiz, with winners announced on August 27.
Workshops at Northolt will cover an array of different arts and opening events will include:
Gillian Spragg, festival artistic director, said: “Such a big selection of arts activity in the same place makes this ideal for young people so sign up for an Arts Award.
“Youngsters are encouraged to take on board a number of different activities and find out more about the artists that practise them. They can reflect on what they have discovered and share their experiences with other people.
“The libraries are the perfect place for this and, at the end, we hope we will be able to award plenty of Arts Award certificates to enthusiastic young arts people.”
The various arts events will be held from August 6 until September 1 during the afternoons (1-6pm) Monday to Friday and on Saturdays from 10.30am -3.30pm at the library in Eastcote Lane North, Northolt, Eastcote.
