Tyneside Cinema Summer Film School

Join us for an exciting adventure at Tyneside Cinema!

Our Summer Schools offer brilliant opportunities for young people aged 8-16 to get hands-on experience in film and animation.

In our Filmmaking Summer School you’ll get to plan, shoot and edit short films in different genres before holding a world premiere for family and friends. This hugely popular week-long programme is a brilliant introduction to filmmaking.

The week starts with an introduction and welcome at Tyneside Cinema, then we’ll head over to our dedicated Pop up Film School just across the road.

It’s only cold when you’re standing still…

Sarah from Xercise4Less gives Raring2go! some great ideas for family fun to keep fit and healthy. Don't get stuck indoors just because it is winter. Dark mornings, cold blustery evenings and it seems we would all rather reach for our duvet than even contemplate heading outdoors to get active! Remember it’s only cold when you’re standing still…
