Covid 19: 2020 Mix it! Virtual Academy

In these difficult times the team at Mix it! and Attenborough Arts Centre have been discussing plans to make sure we are still able to offer an amazing drama and arts experience come July. We’ve been busy planning away so if we aren’t able to run Mix it! in person, we can still make the most of the incredible things you can do online with a virtual Mix it! Academy!
