Let’s Make Zines Together to celebrate Apollo 50
The Apollo Pavilion, Peterlee’s most iconic landmark is 50 years old this year! To mark the occasion there are a series of arts projects happening across the year, including spectacular installations, a birthday party and participatory workshop programmes. In March, we saw the launch of the Apollo 50 celebrations where the Apollo Pavillion came alive with a spectacular free light installation produced by Artichoke, a little taste of Lumiere in Peterlee.
On 16th July (10am-2pm), there will be a celebratory birthday party featuring a special birthday song created with local schools and musician Barry Hyde. There will also be performances from ‘funky’ street bands as part of Durham Brass Festival and some local community school choirs as well as a free picnic for children. This event is organised by Durham County Council.
East Durham Creates invites you to come along and learn how to print & collage your response to the celebrations. Let’s make Zines together- your ideas, your expression. A zine is a self-published booklet, often created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together that is then photocopied and folded for distribution. There will be a series of FREE workshops with artist Theresa Easton, which will be happening over the school holidays; which are open to all. There will also be a series of closed workshops happening in Peterlee schools throughout summer term with local primary and secondary students.

Tuesday 13th, 20th and 27th August, 2-4pm
Peterlee Library & Leisure Centre, St Cuthbert’s Way, SR8 1AF
Children aged under 11 must come with a parent or carer.
This project is in partnership with Durham County Council.
