Thanks for stopping by
Thank you to everyone who came to see Camelot: The Shining City in Sheffield, The Instant Light Circus Company in Stockton or The tour of Rugby Songs to Leeds’ rugby clubs. It’s been such a busy busy summer and it’s been so delightful to meet so many of you at the shows.
The rugby balls and bow ties are now packed away and its time to dig out pullovers as the darker nights draw in.
Thanks everyone that took part in our How To Festival : Fun Palace of Fear recently – we had great feedback from those of you that learnt horror stories, stage combat, grizzly make up, pumpkin carving and cooking – there are some pictures over on our Facebook page here. Our HUB Choir gave their first public performance and there’s still opportunity to swell the ranks, so if you’d like to join the choir just fill in the online form here.
The HUB continues to be a hive of activity this month we are delighted to welcome back Dumbshow with their Edinburgh Fringe hit ELECTRIC DREAMS (inspired by Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine). It’s been recommended by the Guardian, the Telegraph and six ★★★★ reviews. Thrilling, necessary and politically urgent theatre. Don’t miss it! Read what The Stage thought of it in their review.
On Sunday 18th October Brad McCormick (who’s adventure-in-a-car The Fixer was a HUB highlight of last year) – returns with Cap-A-Pie for THE TOWN MEETING . There’s a limited audience capacity of 30 people in each performance so we’re giving you two chances to see it at 2pm and 5pm on October 18th. There’s a great recent in The Guardian here.
Then spilling ever so slightly into the following month, our good friends Handheld Arts bring their playfully twisted cautionary tale GATED COMMUNITY on 1st November. Inspired by The Wicker Man, Read Window and J.G. Ballard’s Running Wild, the show is part of Suspense Puppetry Festival taking place in London and beyond.
Finally if you’d be interested in having a stall at the Christmas Fayre on Sunday 6th December, the information you need is here.
See you soon
