Ararat holiday plans kick off
Children in Ararat Rural City can delight in a mix of magic shows, craft and puppetry across the school holidays.
Ararat Town Hall, Ararat Regional Library and Ararat Gallery are joining forces to offer a holiday program, including family-friendly shows, library activities and a dropin art gallery activity.
Ararat Town Hall will take ‘Trinket the Robot’, a puppet show telling the story of a robot who longs to be real, to the Willaura Hall on July 10.
Ararat Art Gallery will run a dropin activity across the two weeks, where children can make three-dimensional objects from coloured paper to add to a display of similar objects started during Education Week.
Ararat Regional Library will host two actvities on July 12, including a scratch-board boomerang making session between 11am and 2pm as part of NAIDOC Week, and a magic show and workshop with Australian magician Duck Cameron from 2pm.
Ararat Rural City Council’s media and communications officer Leah Heinrich said the workshop was a ‘rare glimpse behind the smoke and mirrors, teaching some fun magic suitable for ages five to 12’.
The gallery and library activities are free to attend, while ‘Trinket the Robot’ costs $12 a ticket.
