Youngsters enjoyed a week of drama games, voice projections and songs and dances at Youth Acts UP summer workshop. 

Children aged eight and above attended the five-day workshop held in the village hall and community rooms in Little Downham. 

The week was funded by a Celebrate 25 lottery grant, and featured popular team drama games and warm up exercises.  

It was based around pantomime and what the audience expects from the cast.
