Following the success of Pandemonium I in 2009 and Fatasmagoria in 2010, Theatre Modo will again be working with Reaching Out Project and Shell UK to bring the Shell Fireworks Parade back to Peterhead this year.

In preparation, Theatre Modo is running various free workshops and activities throughout Scottish Week and the following week.

Theatre Modo is encouraging local youngsters to take part in the Scottish Week parade, and to this end will work with young people to create routines, props and costumes.

Whether it is walking on stilts, creating a dance routine or building giant puppets, you can play a key role in the parade on Saturday.

Workshops suitable for 11-18 year olds will be held every morning this week from 10am to 1pm at the Lido Marquee.

Today (Tuesday) from 2pm to 5pm afternoon there is fun at Boddam Hall for children aged 8-13.

You will find the Modo team at the Rescue Hall on Wednesday afternoon from 2pm to 5pm for those between 11 and 18 years of age.

On Friday from 2pm to 4.30pm they are having a family fun afternoon at Peterhead Community Centre. Children under the age of seven must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone wishing more information can contact Theatre Modo on 079373 963301.

Theatre Modo with Reaching Out Project and Shell UK has been shortlisted in the Community category of the Arts & Business Scotland Awards 2011.

The winners will be announced at the awards dinner on the evening of October 26 in Aberdeen.
