A POPULAR theatre in Clacton is set to host a fun and festive wreath making workshop in the lead up to Christmas.

The Princes Theatre has teamed up with Mansion House Florist to run the workshops aiming at getting people into the festive spirit.

Led by tutor Keeley and her team, people of all abilities can create a handmade charm for their front door this Christmas on November 29 and December 4.

Mick Barry, cabinet member for leisure and public realm at Tendring Council, said the workshops were great fun to do with friends.

He said: “This is an ideal way to get into the Christmas spirit, with some festive art and craft with your friends or maybe family

“At the end of it you can take home your fantastic wreath to proudly display on your front door; and help to spread some Christmas joy in your neighbourhood as well.”
