EVER thought about giving acting a try?

A drama group has been launched by Mountbatten as part of the charity's efforts to engage the Isle of Wight community.

The community group will be open to everyone over the age of 16 and no previous experience is required.

Mountbatten art therapist Stephanie Brittain said: “Come and give acting a try! We will be starting with working towards a radio play, looking at some of the acting techniques involved in creating a character.

"The focus will be on having fun and being creative, in a relaxed and supportive environment.”

The first session will take place between 1pm and 2pm on Friday, July 19.

There is no cost and all are welcome to attend.

For further information, call Steph on 529511.
