Last Saturday we visited Tamworth, and it should be acknowledged that it is the flowery-est town we’ve ever performed in. So many hanging baskets, beds and flower boxes… all absolutely gorgeous in the last of the summer sunshine. (See the pictures if you don’t believe me.)
The brilliant Laura Patrick, Tamworth’s Arts and Events Development Manager, contacted HQ this year and between us we hatched a plan to deliver our half-day CPD training and a special gig for their ‘Arts in Unusual Spaces’ programme.
During our morning workshop we were joined by members from Tamworth Wind Band who were taken through a whistle stop programme of movement, street performance and music tuition before joining the band for a live, flash-mob performance in Tamworth’s busy Castle Grounds.
Well done to all the participants, you were so brilliantly up for it and put on a terrific show. We really enjoyed performing with you. To quote Laura, “In terms of cultural development, we call this ‘Finding the Gold”. We agree…
