Festival to keep children busy

Have your say

A FESTIVAL is set to bring learning out of the classroom at the same time as top education professionals descend on Sheffield this month.

LearnFest has been organised to run alongside the prestigious North of England Education Conference, between January 16 and 19.

Taking a break from the conference, Professor Isaac Prilleltensky from the University of Miami and top consultant clinical psychologist and writer, Professor Tanya Byron will be speaking in the Millennium Galleries.

There will also be exciting workshops and activities for children – ranging from lively zumbatomic sessions to circus skills and a chance to learn wood carving and DJ skills.
