WANNABE witches and wizards ‘flew’ into Saffron Walden Museum on broomsticks as they took part in a one-day drama workshop to mark the end of the Witch Hunt exhibition.
Seven youngsters, aged seven to 12, worked together with the leaders of the Witches and Wizards workshop, Brenda Burch and Amy Glover, to create a piece of promenade theatre performed to an audience of family and friends on Saturday afternoon.
Beginning at 10am, those who took part had just six hours to put together their performance, based on interpretations of speeches from the famous witches’ scene in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
“Our witches and wizards worked incredibly hard,” said museum assistant Amy.
“We had such a fantastic day working with the young witches and wizards and we are hoping to work with the museum later in the year and run some more themed Drama Workshops!”
