People involved in the Shout! Youth Theatre group between 1998 and 2018 are being invited to a reunion this month and to take part in a new play.

Last month ‘Shout!’ received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant for an exciting project, ‘Shouting for 20 Years’.

Members will also interview former members of ‘Shout!’ to create an oral history archive of their experiences, create a book of scripts containing 50 plays and put on an exhibition at the Corby Heritage Centre.

Organiser Paula Boulton said: "After the reunion we will invite people to be involved in making a new play about our 20-year history and invite anyone who would like to be interviewed to come forward and tell us how their lives have developed."

The free-of-charge reunion takes place at the Corby Old Village Community Centre at 6.30pm on Saturday, November 23. Anyone who would like to come along can e-mail Jen at [email protected]
