Otley Courthouse will be inviting visitors to try everything from hat-making to acting next week.

The venue, as part of its tenth anniversary celebrations, is holding an activities-packed open day from 10am to 4pm on Monday.

The free event will feature face painting, drop-in art sessions and a plethora of morning stalls from some of the groups who use the Courthouse, including Weekend Woollies, Otley Science Festival, Otley Brass Band and Otley Film Society.

Taster sessions for WEA Creative Writing, Courthouse Writers, and Performance Drama School – with separate dance and drama workshops – will also be held in the afternoon.

And a special art exhibition, showcasing work produced by the venue’s volunteers, will be unveiled from 2pm to 4pm.

Admission is free, with small charges to cover materials for some of the creative events. For more details visit www.otleycourt house.org.uk.
