Weston Library will host a series of workshops to inspire young adventurers.

To celebrate the performances of Jason And The Argonauts at the Tropicana this week a treasure hunt will be held at the library, in Walliscote Grove Road, from 10-11am on Thursday.

Four Swords, the company performing the show, will also put on a drama workshop on Saturday.

Jason And The Argonauts is a Greek tale about Jason’s quest to find the mythical golden fleece.

The production, created alongside Forkbeard Fantasy, uses puppetry and film projections to life

The drama workshop is priced £3 per child which can be paid on the day.

The Tropicana is also hosting productions of another Greek classic, Medea, from Wednesday until Saturday.

For more information on the treasure hunt and drama workshops, call the library on 01934 426010.
