The theme is simple….

“COLD”

You could enter something you wear that stops you from getting COLD, something you have brewed, best served COLD, an illuminated summer scene, because it isn’t COLD. A theatrical piece where a character dies and ends up COLD in the ground. Use your imagination and bring your best work forward.

Right now we are working on the A&S Timetable. This is a great opportunity for you to share what you know with other like minded people. Perhaps you have run lots of classes before, perhaps you have never run a class but would like to give it a try. All skill levels and all subjects are welcome!

Please advise when Booking if you wish to run a class. The Arts and Sciences timetable will be published closer to the event.
