The art is in the making

Castle Vale’s Active Arts Day made an impressive debut on Saturday-even if we do say so ourselves. The event, designed to launch the new Active Arts group and offer locals a chance to take part in a range of free performances and workshops, drew hundreds of participants from all over Castle Vale and Birmingham, and indeed as far as Warwickshire! 

Despite the weather, The Grand National and various other reasons to stay at home, people flocked to take part and all four of the community venues, which had been turned into arts ‘hubs’ for the day, were filled with people making, doing, watching and generally enjoying something new and creative. 

Since Saturday we’ve been inundated with requests from locals who would like to see some of the taster workshops turned into regular classes. If you participated in a session on the day and have something to say, or have any thoughts about activities that you would like to see run in the area, please don’t hesitate to contact us. All ideas will be considered by the Active Arts steering group, and hopefully you’ll start to see some new additions to Castle Vale’s already vibrant arts programme over the coming months. 

Our thanks to everyone who supported the event and to Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Mike Sharpe and his wife, Thelma, who opened the day’s proceedings.
