If you've thought about taking up a new hobby but never known where to start, now is your chance to get involved.

Up For Arts brings together arts and craft groups from across the city and they want you to join them!

Activities range from animation to acting, brass bands to ballroom, film making to folk dancing and everything in between.

So now is the perfect time to pick up that paintbrush or dust down those dancing shows and be Up for Arts!
