This summer Travelling Light and Wyldwood Arts led a FREE drama summer school that got right to the heart of Barton Hill.
Together with a professional Director Writer and Designer and an incredible team of local young people we created a whole play inspired by the true stories of local people. The performance moved audiences at the Redfest sharing, with hardly a dry eye in the house. This proiduction will be workshopped during the youth theatre autumn term before performing the finished piece at Barton Hill Festival. It's going to be a very special experience. If you would like more info about how to get involved with this fun project contact : Giulia Bianchini, Youth Theatre Coordinator. Email: email@example.com . Telephone: 0117 9031649.
