Big Imaginations puts Tarvin Community Centre on the North West theatre map.
Tarvin Community Centre has an aim of becoming a centre for rural arts and this ambition took another step forward when it was the promoter and venue last Friday night for Dommy B's performance of his poem, The Dragon Who Hates Poetry.
As part of a Family Arts Festival, Big Imaginations is a children's theatre festival taking place in the North West between 18th October and 3rd November 2013. It was launched at Salford's new Media Centre on Friday by Cbeebies star,Ben Faulks, (Mr Bloom's Nursery) and CBBC actress Victoria Cook (of DNN, Wave). The festival will deliver a delightfully diverse range of productions created specifically for children between 0 and 12 years old.
Tarvin Community Centre was one of 15 region-wide venues that are dedicated to bringing to the North West brilliant and affordable children's theatre that will excite, amaze, and enchant children and give them a life-long love of theatre. It was a great feeling to be listed along-side venues such as the Unity Theatre in Liverpool and the Lowry in Salford.
Sue Hardacre, the Community Centre's Marketing Manager, said, "We knew we had stepped up into the big league when for the first time ever we had members of our audience arriving with A4 sized e-tickets from the Big Imaginations central booking system!"
