These two spend their days a-wandering and pondering the strangeness of life and find there's always a story to be told or a song to be sung.

Comedy Club 4 Kids: stand-up comedy workshop

Think you're hilarious? Constantly cracking jokes? Join Comedy 4 Kids at Dewsbury Library and Huddersfield Library and learn how to write and perform comedy, find the funny in everyday experiences, and turn this in to confidently delivered stand up and sketches. You'll be guaranteed to have your friends and family roaring with laughter!

Poetry with Lisa Luxx: creative writing and open mic

Two opportunities to work with performance poet Lisa Luxx, whose work has been published in anthologies, magazines and newspapers nationally and internationally, and whose spoken word show sold out venues across a 7 month UK tour. 
 Join us at Huddersfield Library for a creative writing workshop in the morning or share your own work at our open mic event in the afternoon.

Musical Sorcery with Cheryl Camm: music workshop

A fun-filled, inspired musical workshop at the Chestnut Centre Library and Meltham Library. Work with Cheryl Camm, a composer of characterful, ear-tingling tunes, to create magical music. Our inspiration will be Margaret Mahy’s quirky and captivating short story ‘Leaf Magic’ in which a spirited autumn leaf is transformed into something altogether more bonny and playful. We’ll create a mystical sea shanty, and windy, frolicsome autumn dance rhythms to envelop the story in a colourful cloak of magical music.
