Has it got legs?

11am to 4pm @ Leeds Playhouse

Our much-loved patron Ola Animashawun returns to kick off a brand new decade of SY workshops - back home where we belong at the newly reopened Leeds Playhouse. Hurray! Ola's plan is to help you work out whether a story idea is going somewhere... or if you should let it go. His workshops are always great fun - don't miss it!
