●● A YOUTH theatre group is looking for people to take part in upcoming shows.
Bollington Festival Music Theatre is run by volunteers for youngsters from seven to 13.
Its shows this New Year are a double bill of stories of courage in the face of danger. ‘Turaida Rose’ is about a baby dropped by a stork flying over Latvia in 1600 which survived and grew up in a castle. ‘What’s your poison, Mr Hitler?’ is about a girl kidnapped by the Nazis and forced to taste Hitler’s food to prove it wasn’t poisoned.
There is a taster session for the group on Sunday, January 18, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm, at Bollington Arts Centre.
Contact 0161 225 4680 for information. ●● BOLLINGTON Folk Club will take place on Friday, January 16.
Jez Lowe has built a reputation as a songwriter and performer in the world of acoustic music.
He will perform at the Dog and Partridge on Palmerston Street, 8.30pm. Admission costs £7 on the door. ●● THE NEXT Bollington Chamber Concert is on Saturday, January 24.
