A big congratulations to 5 members of the Jackass Youth Theatre ‘Gobsprites’ division. The group travelled to Manchester to sell their wares on the 10th of May at the first Live Unltd Young Trader Youth Market.
Kate Ranson, Rebecca Robson, Molly Turrell, Daisy Young and Georgia Townsend received grants to buy stock and materials to create their unique stalls. T-shirts, bookmarks, cupcakes, jewellery, notepads and shoes all went up for sale in the bustling Saturday market and the girls came back with a tidy sum, a sense of accomplishment, and a blinding sugar hang-over.
The proceeds will go towards funding Jackass’ upcoming trip to the International Indra Congress in Northern Ireland and the founding of a young person’s creative writing residential programme. Watch this space!
Jack Drum Arts are scouring the North East for a Beatboxer to work alongside our fab new Dance instructor, Alys North. They’ll have the opportunity to work with young people aged 14-24 to create a music and dance infused Flashmob extravaganza to be performed this summer. We need a full day of delivery on Mondays 22nd & 29th July, and 5th, 12th & 19th August. If you’re interested or know anyone, please contact email@example.com or call the office on 01388 765002
