This free Light UP Taster Class for children (aged 7-12 years) will by run by Light UP Youth Theatre. The class is supported by research funding by the University of Southampton as part of the project ​Re-futuring Community Libraries: understand their role in placemaking and local creative economies.

During the class, the library will be open, so we invite parents and families to stay and enjoy the library space. We would really appreciate it if you could remain at the library and contribute to the project by undertaking a short survey or talking with one of our researchers about your views on the role of libraries in communities while your child takes part in the activity. 

Before participating in the research, you will be provided with an information sheet and consent form. Participation is entirely voluntary.


If you plan for siblings or more than one child to take part in the workshops, please make sure you complete a registration form for EACH individual child.
