The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
