A new season of live theatre in community venues in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire brings plays, dance and music to both counties.
ArtERY in the East Riding will see four touring productions and audiences in Northern Lincolnshire can enjoy a total of eight at village halls from March to June. The programme is devised by the social enterprise, Blaize, with Arts Council funding.
Yvonne Dumsday of Swanland Village Hall in East Yorkshire says it’s a great bonus for communities with a wide range of entertainments…..
