Budding performers looking to try out their acting skills and get creative are being invited to join a youth theatre group.

Unit Twenty Three, a South Norfolk social enterprise group, runs term-time theatre workshops in and around Diss for young people aged 12 and above.

The weekly workshops cover all types of theatre and aim to help participants build confidence through various games, team-working exercises and simply being creative.

The groups are open to anyone who is willing to take part with no need to audition.

Workshops for young people aged 12 to 16 are currently run in Bressingham Village Hall, with the group looking to start a new workshop in Botesdale Village Hall for eight to 12-year-olds.

The Bressingham Village Hall group meets on Wednesday evenings from 5.30pm to 7.30pm. Attendance costs £60 per half-term, with half bursaries available.
