Arts workshops for all ages during February and March
Highlights Rural Touring and Eden District Council are inviting communities across the district to engage in Covid-secure arts activities and events, on and offline, through their joint initiative: Highlighting Eden.
Working with a number of regional artists to deliver free online arts workshops for all ages, the programme leads up to a Light Up festival on Saturday 20th March – inviting individuals, businesses and schools to light up 1000 windows, doorsteps or gardens with homemade lanterns.
