SAFFRON Screen is offering children aged seven to 11 an opportunity to discover how to tell a story using classic traditional puppet animation.

The local community cinema is running a Shadow Puppet Course on Sunday January 21, from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

This follows a similar, very successful course that took place last year. Participants will learn how to develop a story and then make puppets to tell the story. It will culminate in a show for families and friends.

The course compliments the screening of The Adventures of Prince Achmed (PG), a classic shadow puppet animation film involving a wicked sorcerer, a brave prince, ogres, monsters and a beautiful princess. The Adventures of Prince Achmed is showing at 3pm on Saturday January 30 and Sunday at Saffron Screen.

Places on the course are limited and booking is essential. Tickets are £20 each and can be purchased at the Saffron Screen box office or at the Tourist Information Centre on Market Square. More information about the course can be obtained by e-mailing info@saffronscreen.com.

Tickets and further information for upcoming films is available online at www.saffronscreen.com, from the TIC or the box office. Saffron Screen is a not-for-profit, independent cinema operating at Saffron Walden County High School with cinema seating, a full size screen and Dolby Digital surround sound.
