Our timetable includes weekly workshop sessions such as the Backstage Youth Clubs, Writer’s Room, Ghostbuskers and Animation Club, as well as events, cinema screenings, bespoke projects, training and much more.  Activities take place at the TAPE Community Arts Centre and as outreach projects across North Wales.
