A joint venture between professional theatre company Blaize Theatre and Spot On, Lancashire’s rural touring network, is looking for children, families and people of all ages to lend a hand for their upcoming performance in Gisburn Forest.
The main event will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 15th and 16th, and is free for anyone to take part. Blaize Theatre will be running free art workshops at Newton village hall, and are asking for help in bringing “The Ballads of the Beasts of Bowland” production to life.
On Sunday, August 10th, through to Thursday, August 14th, there will be fun and creative workshops held at the village hall from 3 to 6pm and 7 to 9pm on daily, offering the chance to write songs, make props, dance, act or make costumes.
On Friday, August 15th, there will be an afternoon rehearsal in Stephen Park, Gisburn Forest, Slaidburn, followed by the first public performance at 6pm. There will be further performances at 2 and 5pm on Saturday. Tickets for all performances are free, but donations are welcome.
Sue Robinson, Spot On Lancashire director, said: “This is a great fun show for all the family. We believe the forest is awash with beasts! Come out from your hiding holes and help make the Ballads of the Beasts of Bowland a roaring success.”
The show is a promenade format, which involves a short walk from Stephen Park car park into the heart of Gisburn forest, over gravel, grass and track terrain for about an hour. Sensible clothing and footwear is recommended and there is no seating.
