Youngsters’ chance to show off creative side

SCARBOROUGH youngsters can indulge in their creative side thanks to a free multi-arts festival weekend in the town.

Rollercoastival has been planned for February 19 and 20 to run alongside Coastival and is aimed at children from pre-school age up to 11.

Children can join in the rapping lessons with the Scarborough Hip Hop School, try out ‘slam’ poetry with poet John Wedgwood Clarke, take part in art workshops or have a chance to join a samba workshop alongside various other activities.

For the finale, children’s favourites, Yorkshire duo Spill the Beans, will be entertaining families in the Spa Theatre on Sunday afternoon.

All Rollercoastival events will take place at the Spa Complex and Scarborough Library. To book a place at the event, call (01723) 384545.
