Getting some Inspiration

This evening we hosted a short performance by Inspiration Theatre Group. They have been been meeting in the hall on Tuesday evenings since October. They work really hard in singing, drama and dance. Tonight they performed extracts from the hit musical Bugsy Malone.

Mums and Dads were invited along to see what had been achieved in a few weeks and everyone was delighted with how much progress had been made.

If you have a son or daughter who would like to learn to sing, act and dance then bring  them along to the hall on a Tuesday evening. Classes will start again on 10 January.
