The first live performance is to be staged at Corby’s new art gallery on Thursday (August 2), featuring entertainers Arts Alive.
The performance, which will include sketches, poems and songs, is entitled Roots, Rhymes and Recollections.
It uses humour to examine the ageing process and reveals just what the contents of people’s bags say about them.
It is an original work created by Arts Alive, which is made up of eight members of an over-50s creative group which meets every week at The Core theatre, in the town.
Corby writer Paula Boulton, who runs the group, said: “This is the first performance of its kind we have staged at the gallery and I hope people will come along and enjoy it. It’s very amusing. We plan to develop a small-scale performance area in the gallery.”
There will be no admission charge but donations can be made.
The performance at the Rooftop Art Gallery and Workshops, in the former library above Queens Square, in the town centre, starts at 1.30pm.
