A series of workshops have been announced by Highworth's WrdeUp Festival in partnership with the town's Jazz Festival.

They cover jazz-dance and beginner and intermediate jazz music.
The jazz-dance workshops, led by professional UK jazz-dancer Mark Armstrong, will be held on Thursdays 20 June, 27 June and 4 July from 7-8pm and are free for 10 people.
No experience is needed, although participants will require a reasonable level of fitness for an hour of basic exercise.
The sessions, focusing on two-to-three-minute group routines, will be held in a fun and relaxed group setting, culminating in a small display at WrdeUp Grass Roots on Sunday 7 July - although there is no obligation to perform in this.
There will also be free beginner/intermediate jazz workshops on Wednesdays 19 June, 26 June and 3 July at St Michael's Church, running from 7-9pm and again free for 10 people.
These sessions will be open to those with their own instruments playing drums, guitar, piano, double bass, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, flute and violin, and culminate in a small display at WrdeUp Grass Roots on Sunday 7July, although there will be no pressure to perform.
People interested in either set of sessions - or both - are asked to visit www.wrdeup.co.uk/grassroots and click on the relevant section headings.
