A special event is taking place in Sefton to encourage local residents to try something different and learn new skills while having fun.
Sefton’s Festival of Learning Summer Fair takes place Saturday June 16, 12noon-4pm at Sefton Community Learning Centre, 53 Cambridge Road, Seaforth.
The air will be filled with tantalising smells from festival goers trying their hand at making tapas and other Mediterranean dishes as the more artistic among them give charcoal drawing and water colour painting a go.
There will be workshops that everyone can take part in and try something new, with the added bonus of free food for children when they or an adult they attend with complete the workshop.
The eclectic mix of fun learning activities will vary wildly, from learning about Viking culture to building bird boxes and much more besides.
The festival has lots to offer all ages, whether whizzing around on go karts, tackling the assault course and giant slide, or sparking their creative side of little ones with family craft sessions.
Visitors will never be short of food or entertainment as local businesses from across Sefton will set up shop on the day.
Cllr Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member for Communities at Sefton Council, said: “Learning new skills can be very positive for our happiness and mental well being, as well as equipping us for life in new ways.
“Sefton Council’s Community Learning Service has a brilliant array of courses all year round, but this festival is a fun way to learn more about the service, learn new skills on the day and, just as importantly, have fun.”
