Good Friday at the Pop In Place..

April 22nd
Thank you to everyone who attended the Pop In Place this Good Friday Morning.
A special thank you to the JC Theatre from St John the Baptist Church Bere Regis for the superb puppet show .
The Easter bonnet parade was wonderful giving our judges Max and Karen a really difficult task.
The winners were Under eights Jordan Burbidge Hughes, Over eights Jazmin Burbidge Hughes and the winner of the Adults section was Gill Hart.
Well done to them and to everyone who went to the trouble of making a bonnet and coming along to the parade, you were all fantastic.
We have posted some photos of the morning for you to see, and everyone on the team at the Pop In Place wishes you all a very Happy Easter.
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.

April 25th

The performers group have made an excellent start on the new summer show entitled “over the ainbow”.
This is a youth based project where the youngsters have been involved in the writing of the script, the choreography and are being encouraged to allow the production to develop organically using their own ideas. Our show director AlisonBennett has a young assistant director Jazmin Burbidge Hughes and she is learning new skills and offering her ideas towards the end production.

Tickets will be on sale for early May and are £5 each available from The Pop In Place. This Production promises to be very special and will help to raise much needed funds for The British Heart Foundation.
