Venture into a world of movie magic at The Carriageworks, learning animation and filmmaking skills from the professionals!

Our Film Academy programme is back with lots of amazing workshops where you can learn everything from animation skills to special effects. Minecraft fans can join our Minecraft Xbox Build Battle while kids (of all ages) can learn to make an Aardman character to take home.
