Spring 2015 at Trowbridge Town Hall
Trowbridge Arts New Season - something for everyone
A programme of professional performances, Visual Art Exhibitions and opportunities to take part has been launched this week with the publication of the new Trowbridge Arts brochure.
The season begins on Friday 20th February with a Ministry Of Entertainments, Normal Service Will Be Resumed, set in 1962 when Kennedy and Khruschev were about to collide over Cuba, but the real trouble is brewing thousands of miles away, deep below the surface of Bristol. Normal Service Will Be Resumed is a perfect blend of songs, excellent theatre and hilarious comedy.
This is followed by The Ugly Duckling on Saturday 28th February, brilliant storytelling, fantastic puppets and a delightful musical score makes this a fabulous show for little ones and their families.
The rest of the season includes Jane Eyre; a new musical production about the life of Adge Cutler of Wurzels fame; Peter Knight’s Gigspanner, who sold out in Trowbridge at Trowbridge Arts Festival two years ago; Adolf by the fabulous Pip Utton; a stunning professional dance event set again the backdrop of New York’s iconic Empire State Building; Unearthed by exciting new company Folio led by local actress Lizzie Stables best known for her part in The Inbetweeners; beautiful children’s piece The Boy Who Bit Picasso and much more.
Our season of Visual Art Exhibitions has opened with The Pound Open on Tour with over eighty artworks including paintings, drawing, photography and sculpture. We are holding a People Choice event where the artists will attend and a the People’s Choice winner announced.
