The National Saturday Club gives kids the opportunity to participate in 30 Saturdays throughout the year at their local university, college, or museum for free! Over the past 8 years the Saturday Club has thrived expanding to over 50 locations throughout the country. The students are taught new techniques, they learn how to handle new materials, and develop new skills. Apart from the 30 classes Club members get to attend a London Visit to museums where they get to meet other young creatives as well as hear talks from trustees and other partners. They also get to attend masterclasses with industry leading professionals. Many parents and teachers have reported that attendance to the Saturday Club has lead to improved motivation and attitude at school. An average of 70% of Club members want to pursue a career in an industry they were exposed to during the classes.
The Saturday Club hopes that by 2018, as many as 2,500 young people will be apart of the free Saturday morning classes.
The Summer Show is open to the public 12th-18th June 2017 and entry is free.
