Up for Arts in Rhyl this Saturday
If you're in or near Rhyl this Saturday and fancy trying your hand at something creative, head down to the White Rose Centre on the High Street.
Voluntary Arts Wales has organised an Up for Arts event in Rhyl, which follows another successful event in Carmarthen last weekend.
This Saturday there will be around 10 local arts groups displaying their work, some of whom will be demonstrating their art forms and letting the public have a go.
Some of the groups taking part include the North Wales Women's Centre Creative Writing Group; Knitting Knutters; Rhyl Music Club; Rhyl and District Musical Theatre and Phoenix Performers. Rene Davies will be there representing Denbighshire Art Society and Conwy Valley Arts Society, while people will be on hand to spread the word about Helfa Gelf Open Studios, currently taking place all over north Wales throughout September.
The day will kick off at 11am and there will be performances including bellydancing and Bollywood dancing, with members of the Rhyl Junior Marching Band and Rhyl Silver Band also set to entertain visitors.

Up for Arts events have previously been held in Merseyside, Salford, Gateshead and Carmarthen. They aim to bring together local amateur arts, crafts and cultural groups to celebrate the work of voluntary arts groups and to encourage local people to take part and try something new.
