Rhythms of the World 2012 was pleased to host a Family Area theme of ‘The Planets’. Children came and enjoyed a mixture of music, art, games and activities, all with a stellar twist.
Throughout the day, children and their families were able to enjoy face painting, body stencilling, giant games, circus skills workshops with Circus Passion, recycled art workshops with Manna Cafe and a range of activities provided by Millie’s Arts & Crafts, including a rocket and alien painting competition. As well as this, there was a schedule of workshops that ran at specific times on each day of the festival, these included:
