Children will have the chance to learn about ancient Indian animal fables during three library workshops.
The Panchatantra, which is an ancient Indian inter-related collection of animal fables in verse and prose, will be the subject of three children’s workshops on Tuesday, 27 August.
The workshops are open to children aged between five and 11 and will see them tell Panchatantra stories and poems, using colourful animal masks and music, introducing them to the ‘Ancient Fables of India’.
Rohit Ballal, in conjunction with the South Asian Performing Arts Centre, will be leading the workshops which will be held at West Swindon Library (11am), North Swindon Library (1.30pm) and Central Library (3.15pm).
Places are strictly limited and advance booking is required. Tickets are £1.50 for library members and £2.50 for non-members. There is no charge for parents or carers.
