Pumpkin Fun in the Cafe

There was spooky fun in Bridport Arts Centre today when children filled the cafe to carve pumpkins.

Participation Officer, Megan Dunford and Front of House Manager Emma Foulsham led the lively drop in session that saw children getting involved in some ghooollish pumpkin carving.

Some of the faces were so spooky that they even made the grown ups scared.

We were so happy with the feedback from one brilliant Nanny:

A massive THANK YOU for the pumpkin 🎃  carving at The Bridport Arts Centre yesterday! My grandson is on the Autistic Spectrum and when we got there it was very busy, a large room full of happy children naturally excited and making a lot of noise, unfortunately he got a bit freaked out. I explained Leo’s situation to one of the staff and they were brilliant, they let us use the ticket desk in the foyer where it was quieter and he was fine! For £2 we got our pumpkin and an electric candle, Leo chose one of the more difficult carvings to do….a cat, so with a little help from Nanny we managed it! They took a photo but Leo did not want his taken, the lady asked him if the cat had a name and he said yes, DAVE! So on their Facebook page it will be Dave the cat by Leo aged 5! Again many thanks for helping to make Leo feel welcome!….. Patricia Swaby, Beaminster (and Leo!)

Look out for more creative classes for kids here throughout the year.
