Free Animation Workshop - Details of Event

Bridlington RNLI to host a free animation workshop as part of the RNLI200 celebrations.

The year 2024 is a landmark year for the RNLI and the volunteers at Bridlington RNLI would like you to get involved. Our first event of the year will kick off the celebrations for RNLI200 on Sunday 3 March 2024.

To prepare for this event Bridlington RNLI have joined up with local company Animated Objects Theatre Company to create a short film marking this historic occasion. The film will be projected onto the wall of Bridlington Spa at dusk. This will be a stunning start to the RNLI 200 events that will be held in the town throughout the year, more details of future events to be published throughout the next 12 months.

How do I get involved you may ask? Well, we would like to invite anyone to come and join us at the Lifeboat Station to help create this film. The sessions are suitable for anyone aged 7 years and above, for both beginners and those with some experience of animation. (Children MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times).

If you wish to get involved in this community project, the event will take place at Bridlington RNLI Lifeboat Station on Saturday 27 January 2024 between 11am-1pm.
