Children’s University Workshops

FREE and fun learn-at-home video workshops from the SJT!

Brought to you in conjunction with our friends at the Scarborough and North Yorkshire Children’s University. There are four sessions each in drama, junk band and dance, delivered by SJT professionals and aimed at children aged 5 to 11.
