In Good Company:Remi Harris Trio Q&A

ON Tour: Chip Shop Chips at Hart Village Hall 10.03.2018"An amazing time which was so entertaining and so real you felt the emotions, fantastic"   - Audience Member
On 10th March, Hart Village Hall played host to the wonderful "Chip Shop Chips" by Box of Tricks Theatre. Written by Becky Prestwich the show incorporated immersive theatre with a heart-warming tale about losing love and then finding it again.

We got the chance to go along to the show to experience it for ourselves and meet our Hart ON Tour promoter, Emma Stanworth. As we entered the village hall the atmosphere was already buzzing and there seemed to be a lot of excitement in the air. The entire venue had been transformed into a Fish and Chip Shop. Tables with red checkered cloths and salt and vinegar a-plenty, were spread out around the hall, allowing the audience to come together and have a natter before the show kicked off.

As the play began, whilst we munched away on our Fish and Chip supper, the au…

MY CREATETour...With RJC Dance (Dance Workshop at Tuned In! Redcar)
For our first CREATE Tour project of 2018, we worked with RJC Dance to provide a number of carnival dance workshops to young people across North Yorkshire: at Tuned In! Redcar, at Butterflies Dance School in Thirsk and at Primary Schools Badger Hill Primary and Whitecliffe Primary, both in Saltburn-by-the-sea.

We asked our young people at the workshops what they most enjoyed about taking part in the project... "Everything!""I liked how enthusiastic the dance was, we had fun and expressed how well we can dance.""Learning new dances and creating your own dance" - Tuned In!
