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.

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