A series of free creative workshops for ten to 16-year-olds will take centre stage this summer in libraries across Suffolk.

Suffolk Libraries has unveiled a new programme offering free creative workshops for children during the school holidays, with a wide variety of activities on offer.

The Blank Page project will see high-quality workshops run by local artists including comic book creation, storytelling, performance, poetry, bookbinding, album creation and lots more.

Running from Monday, July 24 to August 31, workshops will be held across nine libraries in the county including Lowestoft, Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth.
