Family Saturdays | DarkFest Special

27 Oct

Join artist and illustrator Bethia Bridges to create a spooky-puppet show, using projectors and light.

Following this, young artists will be illustrating their own spell-sheets - a perfect prop for a scary Halloween costume! There’s no need to book, simply turn up and #GetCreative!

This event is part of Portsmouth DarkFest, an annual creative festival exploring all things dark and sinister, inspired by the Supernatural Cities project at the University of Portsmouth. DarkFest 2018 runs from the 19th October to the 11th November – explore the full programme of more than 30 events at
