Come along to learn English and share your music passion. The 45 minute workshops will take place at 12.00 (for children up to 12 years old accompanied by their parents) and at 13:30 (for teenagers ages 13-18)

The engaging English-music workshops will be led by Ricky Krzyżewski – a British Council teacher with many years’ teaching experience. He is also a music fan and you might have seen him recently on television programmes including Mam Talent and Ugotowani!

The first 10 people who come to each of the workshops will be awarded with an attractive gift. Later there will be also opportunity to win free tickets for the evening rock concert on Malt Island.
