Newcastle gets ready to host Creative Spaces

7 November 2018

A NEW arts event, entitled Creative Spaces, will take place in the Newcastle Centre on Saturday, November 17.

The one-day event will provide local children aged 7-11 with the opportunity to create and perform a short ‘play-in-a-day’.

It will be written and directed by a leading production company, whilst other activities throughout the day will include workshops focused on music, theatre and creative writing for children aged three and upwards.

Creative Spaces is taking place with the support of the Grand Opera House and Phoenix Natural Gas.

Geri Wright, communications manager of Phoenix Natural Gas, said: “We’re proud to collaborate with the Grand Opera House on this project and provide the community with an event created specifically for local families. 

“With workshops in creative writing, musical theatre and drama, led by some of the finest names in the Northern Ireland arts scene, there really is something for everyone and I would encourage parents to register their children to participate in this fantastic event.  No previous theatre experience is necessary and everyone is welcome to take part.”

Áine Dolan, the Grand Opera’s creative learning manager added: “The one-day event will be led by a professional creative team and we are particularly looking forward to working with local school children in creating, rehearsing a short play and then performing it in front of friends, family and the wider community on the day.”
