Is there a guitar propped up in your bedroom? A drum kit gathering dust in your garage? A trumpet boxed up in the attic? Well, blow off the dust. We're putting the band back together!

We are making a new show for 2016, Putting the Band Back Together. Working with Ross Millard (The Futureheads, Frankie & The Heartstrings) and Cultural Spring, we are collecting people's stories of having given up playing a musical instrument, and hopefully encouraging us all to start again.

The show will feature a band of local people, picking their instruments back up. Could that be you? Come and share your stories, have a laugh and a few tunes at FREE workshops:
7-9pm Thursday 24 September
7-9pm Thursday 29 October
7-9pm Thursday 26 November
Workshops take place at East Boldon Methodist Church, Bridle Path, East Boldon, NE36 0PA.

The final performances of And Let Us Run take place on 8 October at Discovery Museum, Newcastle. This family show, commissioned by Great North Run Cultural Programme, brought together beautiful poetry by David Almond and the creative writing of children at 7 primary schools along the route of the Great North Run. We'll let you know when tickets go on sale.
