DRAMA WORKSHOPS WITH STEPHEN BEGGS

Bringing the short-listed titles to life is certainly one way to galvanise participants and reach out to those who think reading is for ‘nerds’!

Professional actor, director and drama education facilitator, Stephen Beggs, former Company Manager of the Bruiser Theatre Company in Belfast, will provide some wonderful workshops which will see pupils transform themselves into various characters and inanimate objects from the various short-listed titles.

Workshops will take place during the week 24th-28th February 2014.

Please contact the organisers of the Northern Ireland Book Award for details.
