Arts Development

Bell & Bullock


We were successful in our bid to the BBC Performing Arts Fund, one of only 58 in the whole country.

This means we can extend our work with young people beyond the traditional youth theatre model.

So far we have been able to deilver a varied programme of workshops and events for young people.

  • Street Performance and Outdoor Theatre with one of the North-East's most respected circus peformers Bell & Bullock offering a range of skills from Stilt-walking and Uni-cycling to Juggling, Plate spinning and Acro-balance.
  • An Intro To Film-making 2 day course with local film maker Alan Fentiman, creating a short film inspired by wondreful locations in Alnwick.
  • Flash Mob, a public gathering of complete strangers, organised via the internet or mobile phone, who performed a pointless act and then dispersed again. Performed under the guidance of a professional performance artist.
  • Work with Circus Central to develop clowning skills for the forthcoming production of The Greatest Show on Earth presented by Alnwick Playhouse Youth Theatre.
