​Brighton Insider: Workshops

Don’t let the performers have all the fun this Fringe! If you want to join in on the action Brighton Fringe has an excellent line-up of workshops, from creative to family-fun. Make sure you don’t miss some of the Brighton Fringe’s finest imparting their pearls of wisdom during the Festival this May. Here’s a small selection that piqued our interest this year.

Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists are inviting you to join in.

Where: Sweet St Andrews

What: Junk Percussion Workshop. Former Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists Bang On will return to Brighton Fringe this May with an all-out raucous event celebrating the art of noise making! Literally making music out of junk, don’t be surprised to see the duo drumming on bin lids, bashing on bottles tops and what’s more, they’re inviting you to join in.

Where: Speigletent: Bosco

What: Drawing Circus. Whether you’re a budding artist or an acclaimed stick man sketcher, Drawing Circus have organised a drawing event just for you. Don’t worry, these models aren’t in the nude; even better, they will be striking poses in the fanciest of circus attire and vintage wear. With a professional artist-tutor and materials ready and waiting for you, what better way to take a bit of time out from the hustle and bustle of the Fringe and run away with the Circus.

Where: The Warren: Studio 2

What: Tap into Health: Movin’ with Melvin! A firm festival favourite and a frequenter of Fringe City, Movin’ Melvin wants to share his love of all things tap with willing Fringe Festival goers at the Warren this May. Join the dancing legend with his world-touring Tap Into Health and get those toes tapping and that smile a’happenin’. Suitable for all ages.

Where: Nelly Lewis Centre (Brighton Racecourse)

What: Dance Theatre Masterclasses features several classes perfect for those who are looking for a chance to dance. Last year’s Broadway Baby award-winner Nelly Lewis brings her very own programme of Dance Theatre Masterclasses. Up first is Masha Gurina and her Argentine tango styled workshop to ignite those inner fires with an impressive take on creative movement. Then there’s award-winning performer and director Yael Karavan’s workshop on the expressive body, a rare delight and not one to be missed. And if that wasn’t enough, be sure to join Tamer Daly for her musicality and improvisation class, open to all levels of experience.
