Easter Holiday Activities

Welcome to Surrey Arts Easter Holiday Activities online programme.

Despite the national restrictions we are delighted to be able to offer an online learning experience with live workshops and pre-recorded tutorials.

Like the Summer Activities from last year all of our live sessions and activities will require all attendees to register whether the session is free or paid for. This enables the programme to operate safely and in a controlled environment. The sessions will be delivered via Zoom and a link will be sent to each student via their parent or carer after they have been registered. For more information on our zoom safeguarding policy please look at the Guidelines on how to set up online music lessons before signing up to any session.

The 2021 Programme

There will be one week of both popular live music and arts activities available to register for as well as some pre-recorded activities that will be delivered via the Surrey Arts social media channels. Workshop descriptions of all the activities are below including how much they cost and appropriate age ranges and abilities.

Limited places available for each activity. The programme may be subject to change and sessions with low numbers may be cancelled.
