Red Moon Creative Arts Theatre at Wells House and Gardens: Art, Drama & Theatre Skills Summer Camp

We are so excited to welcome Red Moon Creative Arts Theatre to run a fantastic Art, Drama and Theatre Skills Summer Camp on the grounds of Wells House and Gardens for the very first time from the 18th – 21st of July! 


















Using the exciting and enchanting environs of Wells House and Gardens as inspiration the camp will feature the imaginative and creative construction of an original storyline/script and tutoring on the artistic rendering of ideas and designs for the end-of-camp performance.

This camp will cover the design and creation of character attire, instruction in the basics of face-painting-for-stage, introduction to puppetry, drama and performance exercises and performance techniques! This week will be filled to the brim with lots and lots of activity, team work, self-expression, confidence-building, fun and making friends.

The final performance will take place at a secret location on the grounds on the evening of the last day weather permitting (will be indoors otherwise) – what a magical way to round off the week!

This Camp promises to be one of the most unforgettable experiences your child (and us too!) will ever have, so go ahead, make their Summer!
