Keyham AotC

Friday 2nd July 2010
Participating schools:
College Road Primary School
Drake Primary School
Keyham Barton R C Primary
Keyham Green Places Community Centre and the adjacent Alexandra Park were once again the venues for this year’s Keyham Art of the Community event. In the morning children from local schools performed a mini-musical at the Goschen Centre created with the City College Performing Arts Department. They then joined more children and parents to parade through the streets to the park with a colourful display of flags and banners made in pre-event artist-led workshops.

The activities that followed ranged from storytelling in a specially constructed tipi to plate spinning and circus skills, with BTCV volunteers leading a bug hunt around the gardens. The day concluded with a large parade around Alexandra Park and a colourful array of costume, masks, banners and flags - all in preparation for the Big Arts Carnival Parade that took place the following day in Plymouth city centre.

"Keyham Art in the Community provides the four local primary schools with the opportunity to work together as their busy work schedules do not allow collaborative working."
