The emerge youth project is again organising The Mix Festival which takes place at Shaw Church on Saturday from 11.30am to 5pm.
This long running community event will have new attractions this year and a distinctly retro feel, with an American diner style café and beach zone with traditional games.
The performance zone will feature songs from the 50’s/60’s with the Golden Oldies, as well as a Disney singalong for all primary school aged children, plus local dance, drama and music groups.
Arts and crafts are high on the menu too, with a pop-art style mural, make a t-shirt, mosaic picture frames, jewellery, card-making, cup cake decorating, badgemaking and much more.
Messy church will offer crafts throughout the day for younger children and there will be an art gallery to exhibit pictures on a Summer holiday theme. These should be no larger than A4 and can be drawn/painted beforehand or created in the art workshop on the day.
There will be stories told in the surf shack, a puppet workshop and beach games, as well as traditional sideshows provided by local groups and charities.
Facepainting, beauty stalls and a free Zumba workshop will be on offer.
The Bios youth van will provide games consoles, internet access, music and youth information.
Tickets cost £1 per child; adults £2, or family: £5, to include free entry to most workshops and attractions.
