Global Mash Up is a an action-packed week of creative fun with professional artists from across the globe. Discover new activities such as music, dance, poetry, and storytelling in short workshops led by the very best international artists.

Young people aged 8-16 spend a week working on artforms from across the world and creating their own performance that is shown to friends and family on the final afternoon. In previous years, participants have performed songs and dances that they have written and choreographed themselves, with guidance from lead artists. 

In 2019, we worked with the musician Christella Litras, who was supported by Rob Green and Ella Mesma. 

Here is some feedback from parents whose children attended Global Mash Up in October 2019: 

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the week and has given her so much confidence to enjoy what she loves doing... all the staff are amazing. She has learnt a lot from coming here.
