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.
With the end of the year in sight, we’re about to prepare for our December residency at Sheffield Theatres, for 59 Minutes to save Christmas and also relaunching the Emergency Story Penguin submarine to head back to Antarctica.
Our performance programme In The HUB draws to a close this month. Sunday 8 November sees the return of A Firm of Poets with their new show The People’s Republic of Poetry. A cross between a rhyming super-group and ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’, the show is fast paced, with humour, pathos, quizzes and audience participation. And if you’re itching to have a stab performing at the HUB, a pre-show workshop is available at 2pm. Participants will work with A Firm Of Poets to hone their performance poetry skills and will be invited to join them on stage for the evening’s performance.
Places are limited and you’ll need to bring two short poems to the workshop – more details here.
Finally on Sunday 22 November we present Me and Mr C, described by its creator Gary Kitching as “funny with a dark heart”
To book places for any of the above just email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll be announcing events for 2016 in the HUB very soon so keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for more updates. We’re looking forward to welcoming back some brand new companies as well as some old favorites you’ve asked to see again.
Dont forget to keep your diary clear on Sunday 6th December for our Christmas Fayre. We’ll have dozens of stalls featuring food, drinks, jewellery and a multitude of crafty items and vintage goods – perfect for those looking to get ahead with the Christmas shopping!
There’ll be hot food available in the form of the ever popular hog roast, delicious vegetarian Moroccan stew, mulled wine and all the usual cakes and treats. Not forgetting live music from an array of wonderful performers, a chance to sing your favourite Christmas carols, festive story-telling and a whole load of yuletide activities including a fundraising raffle.
We look forward to welcoming old friends and new faces at this year’s Christmas Fayre
