There is no buzzer, we will need to expect you to let you in.

All workshops are free unless otherwise stated.
Where charges apply, pre-booking is necessary.
Charges may apply with particular artist/tutor led teaching workshops.

LSS Performance group members can arrange collection and return of costumes in circulation on these dates.

Clients wanting to hire costumes may find that hires/sales are more easily arranged baring these dates in mind.

Costume Workshops

Costume workshops happen throughout the year and are focused either on our year round gigs or our carnival tour.

If you are feeling crafty, creative, or just plain curious, then please come and join us at any of our workshops.  You can learn some new skills, or just polish up on your current ones. Our costume making involves sewing, cutting, beading, sticking and any number of other ‘ings’…

These are open to anyone wanting to take part in costume making even if not registered to take part on our carnival tour and you don’t need to be a member or dancer or drummer.

No matter what your skill level, there’s always an opportunity to get involved.
The glue guns are warmed up and ready to go!

Make up Workshops

We  are currently building a team of volunteer that want to explore, practice and share their make up skills. These are not tutor led but co-ordinated by volunteers with an interest in developing skills in this area.

If you would like to volunteer to do performers make up towards gigs and events please contact the
