About this event

Use your imagination and creativity to produce an instrument that nobody has ever seen before. Using a microbit, a speaker and everyday objects and scrap materials, your funky musical instrument will soon be ready to play!

Join Paul Clifford to learn how to use BBC Micro:bit, a tiny programmable computer which can be used to create musical instruments.  Your child will invent and design an instrument using scrap objects and their imagination! 

This workshop WILL get noisy. You can take away what you have made but not the electronic devices, though these can be purchases easily online.

Please note, participating children must be accompanied by an adult.
