Youth Revolution- Award For All

This is a project that aims to provide new opportunities for young people to experience workshops of their choice and then share their new found skills with others. So far we have had Street Dance Classes and a Singing Group that performed at a community event. As a result Sporting Future's have continued to provide physical activities locally. New consultations will start shortly to identify what comes next. An unexpected reult of this project had been identifying the need for a womens group in the area. We started with a picnic at Chatsworth and have come up with a number of activities desired by this new awesome and hopefully growing group.


The Roundhouse Presents - Down The Line

Your community needs you.

We're looking for actors, singers, musicians, designers,

backstage crew and general help. No experience necessary


"Down The Line" performances will be from 21st - 23rd Sept

and the show will feature guest appearances by two of the

world's most famous engines:  "The Flying Scotsman" and "Stephenson's Rocket". The show also features Ireland Colliery Brass Band and local community choirs. The show tells the story of the "Staveley Corridor" area, from the coming of the railways to the present day, and is inspired directly by interviews with local people from playwright Kevin Fagen, who has been especially commissioned to write the show.


We are looking for people of all ages interested in performing, singing, music, design, technical and backstage production or simply helping in any way with the show. Children under 12 must be accompanied by adults.
