SUMMER IN THE CITY: Plenty of fun to come this August

Our annual programme of summer fun has seen hundreds of young people getting involved and there’s still loads more to come.

Among the upcoming highlights is the amazing chance to write and perform your own play at the world famous Bush Theatre.

The Bush’s associate theatre company, Milk Presents, will be running a five-day workshop to fire up your imagination and show you the techniques behind creating a great play.

The free project takes place between 11am to 4.30pm from Monday (August 7) until Friday when you’ll be able to perform your creation to a live audience.

It’s open to all young people aged 16 to 21. You don’t have to any experience of acting, but you must sign up in advance by visiting the Bush Theatre’s website.

The theme of the production is gender and what the world would be like if it didn’t exist.

The Bush’s community producer Amanda Castro said everyone will be able to contribute ideas to the play and take on an acting role.

“You’ll get experience of working with professional artists to produce a really high quality play,” she said.

“It will give you the chance to explore ideas about gender and, of course, have a lot of fun.”

If theatre is not your thing...

If you’re not a fan of theatre then there’s still plenty to keep you entertained next week.

Activities include gymnastics sessions at the Phoenix Leisure Centre, White City, from 12pm to 2pm on Tuesday (8 August) and the following week.

As well as cake design classes from 11am to 2pm at the Edward Woods Community Centre from Tuesday to Friday (8-11 August).
