Corn Exchange Learning Centre Open Day and Showcase

The Corn Exchange Learning Centre is holding an Open Day on Sunday 1 July to give local people a chance to try out a range of activities and classes on offer.

From 10am visitors of all ages can get a taster of what’s available at the Learning Centre during the Autumn season by taking part in FREE 45 minute sessions. Under 2s can enjoy a relaxed singing session at Rhyme and Shine while young people can try out Infant Dance (ages 4-7), Junior Dance (ages 8-11), Infant Youth Theatre (Years R, 1 and 2) or  Junior Youth Theatre (Years 3-9). There are plenty of opportunities for adults to try their hand at new activities, including Dare to Dance for anyone aged 55+ and the ever popular Adult Theatre Skills.

The day will culminate in a showcase on the Corn Exchange stage from 3pm featuring performances from a range of current participants including Choir 55, Community Theatre Makers, Dare to Dance, Junior Dance, Youth Dance and the resident male youth dance company, WISE.

Charlotte Hall, Learning and Participation Manager, says ‘We are really excited to be able to present our first ever Learning Centre Open Day and Showcase, giving more people the chance to find out what goes on at the Learning Centre through our host of free taster sessions, in a fun and creative day for all ages’.
