Don’t fancy being cooped up indoors this half-term? Head over to Leatherhead and Dorking for a range of activities to keep the boredom at bay.
An engaging and acoustically-charged beat-boxing project, led by Tobias Hug, co-founder of the world’s first beat-box choir alongside Shlomo and former artistic director of The Swingle Singers, will take place at the BFree Youth Café, in Kingston Road, Leatherhead, from 4pm to 6.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The project, for youngsters aged 11 to 16, will be free to attend and there is no need to book a place. Kids will learn how to use their mouths to make percussive sounds, become a human drum kit, create vocal soundscapes and soundtracks, use a loop station to produce music, and do some vocal recording.
The three sessions will be supported by a team of youth workers and will be filmed. For more information call 01306 870609.
For some entertainment, Dorking Halls, in Reigate Road, will be showing a range of films, including The Lego Movie, and welcome Cbeebies’ Andy and Mike and a Tick Tock Time Machine in their new show. For more information call 01306 881717 or click here.
There will also be active and adventurous pastimes at the Dorking Sports Centre and Leatherhead Leisure Centre during the week.
