“Young people during February’s half time will have the opportunity to lose themselves in the magical world of Peter Pan,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight.

“There is the opportunity to take part in the Play In A Week, Second Star to the Right….., which will be performed at Ropery Hall on Friday, February 22, following daily rehearsals at Waters’ Edge Visitors Centre from 10am to 3pm starting on Monday, February 18,” she went on.

The Ropewalk is hosting workshops making a sculpture of a favourite Peter Pan character using wire, Model Magic and acrylic paints and a magic fairy dust necklace and Tinker Bell Wand while at South Ferriby Primary School there will be the chance to make “Pieces of Eight” pirate treasure as well as a sword.

Barrow Village Hall is hosting a workshop making clay crocodiles while at Westcliff Youth Centre in Scunthorpe there is a second chance to make crocodiles as well as making pirate themed kites.
