Historic pub to host digital skills workshop

Are you aged 16-24 and interested in learning new digital media skills in the setting of a stunning historic Shropshire pub?

Free places are now available for two hands-on workshops in January for anyone who is interested in expanding their digital media skills.

During the workshops, participants will join a digital skills expert and learn how to plan, film and edit a social media advert using nothing but your mobile phone.
