Schools across Weston will be holding workshops for the third annual multi-cultural festival.

Families who attend more than one workshop will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win prizes from several attractions including the Playhouse, Weston Museum and Mendip Outdoor Pursuits.

Participating Schools includes Ashcombe Primary on Earlham Grove, Bournville Primary, Selworthy Road and Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College, Windwhistle Road as well Uphill Primary, Old Church Road and Hans Price Academy, Marchfields Way.

Each workshop is £3 per family. To find a workshop and see the full list of schools, go to or call Xanne Blythe on 01934 422000.
