Roll up roll up! It’s the week before Newport’s Big Splash festival kicks off in our city, and to help get us all in the festival mood, The Project Space are running daily make and take workshops through out the half term holidays leading up to the main event.
Workshops start this Saturday and bank holiday Monday with drop in sessions for the whole family to make recycled junk instruments and balloon costumes between 10am – 4pm, with beach themed colouring in also available on the day!
On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, we’re joined by Tony Balloonman ( http://www.balloon-man.webs.com) who’ll be giving us some expert tips on making balloon costumes to wear on the big day.
On Friday, we’ll also be making our own hula hoops and practising our moves, getting in the party spirit for Saturday.
For the parade itself, meet at The Project Space at 12:30 ready to Samba our way down to Newport’s Red Wave guided by our lovely event stewards – more info on the picture below.
