Live & Local held two very special showcase performances in Mavesyn Ridware (Staffordshire) and Winster (Derbyshire) last week. Volunteer Promoters, Live & Local staff, local arts organisations and our funders from local authorities and the Arts Council England joined village residents to enjoy the funny and heart warming production, You’re Not Like The Other Girls Chrissy by Caroline Horton.
The show tells the extraordinary love story between an eccentric, acutely short-sighted Parisienne and her shy, uptight beanpole from Staffordshire. From a chance encounter at Cheadle tennis club, their story takes us to cosmopolitan 1930s Paris before their inevitable separation by war. It is a clever and genuinely moving production that went down a storm at both venues!
These events aimed to highlight just one of the fabulous acts that can be seen at community venues across Staffordshire and Derbyshire this autumn – and what a great start! There was a great atmosphere at both events and thank you so much to everyone who braved the stormy weather to come out and join us.
See some pictures from the showcases below, including a shot of the amazing raffle at Mavesyn Ridware – we were all keeping our fingers crossed to win the enormous vegetable box.
