The plan is in place and the band is booked. We are now holding a series of open meetings to raise awareness of the event and to recruit the hands that we need to make it all happen. Whether you are up for being Stage Manager, helping to set up the feast, building props, being an actor in the re-enactment or any of the hundreds of roles that will help to make this one of the towns premier events we’d love to have you on board. Why not come along to one of the open meetings just to find out what’s going on.

The next open meeting is at Artspace on Wednesday 11th January 7:00pm – 8:30. Theres lots to catch up on and lots to plan so hope to see you all there. Feel free to invite anyone along. We’ll be starting to sign people unto community actor roles for the street theatre as well as sorting out all sorts of other behind the scenes jobs.

Don’t forget tickets for the Feast are now on sale on the website.
