At the same sessions Gorse Hill Studios provides mixed sessions based around creative arts and expressions, as such young people have a complete choice of which to do at each visit.

Gorse Hill Studios implements a rolling programme of innovative arts (Drama, Dance, Media, Visual Arts and Music) and youth work techniques to create and provide opportunities, empower participants, increase wellbeing and potential. The group explores and identifies a theme for each session that culminates in a series of skills sharing and show back events.

Trips and days out will also form part of the offer and through our Parent/Carer Forum we will explore the most suitable options.

At the end of the day it is about 2 things; ensuring the young people enjoy themselves and to offer parents/carers a short break! 

These sessions also run during the school/college holidays throughout the week.
