YOUNGSTERS looking for some entertainment in Saffron Walden should head down to the Croft Youth Club on Audley Road, where two weeks of free activities start on Monday.

The fortnight of workshops for 13 to 19-year-olds start on Monday with a photography course.

Tuesday will see a professional DJ offering tips on mixing with both traditional vinyl and CD formats. Wednesday and Thursday are taken up with a two-day video workshop.

On Friday nurses from West Essex PCT will be able to answer all your questions on health - sexual, mental or physical - as well as carrying out fun demonstrations.

Week two kicks off with 'trash music' on Monday August 18, where experts will guide you through how to create music from the most unlikely of instruments. From the classic dustbin lid drums through to the more unusual cardboard tube didgeridoos, this workshop will ensure you never look at household rubbish the same way again.

Tuesday's 'Who Are You?' promises to be a day of creative expression. Participants will create a piece of art that communicate who they are, before comparing them with others' to identify both commonalities and individualities.

On Wednesday, a day-long workshop will look at the art of song-writing; not necessarily singing, but what goes into writing a good song.

A guitar and bass workshop on Thursday will provide some expert tuition in plucking and strumming. Some experience is essential.

On August 22, there will be a drum workshop teaching technique for rock and pop drumming and again this requires some experience.

All sessions, which are being organised by Essex County Council, run from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Although all events are free, booking is essential - call Jiff on 07813 086123 between 11am and 5pm.
