The Week That Was (2/5/2022)

Monday


Young Theatre Makers

Monday was a bank holiday so we didn't see our usual groups. We gave our Young Theatre Makers the week off following all their hard work at the connections festival!


Our usual Monday meet-ups are held between 6:30 and 8:30. We are currently working on our skills in physical theatre ready to take on a new project in the coming weeks.






Cheshire Dance


On Mondays at 10am we welcome Cheshire Dance for 'Step Into Dance'. Dance sessions for Home Educated Children aged 7-12. Get creative with new movement skills, learn new dance styles and explore new choreography. Pay per session (£4 only).



No sign-up fees or contracts and all abilities are welcome. Term Time only,

For more info, contact Cheshire Dance on 01606 861770 or email: classes@cheshiredance.org.


Tuesday.


Tuesday's are craft days!! We would love you to join our small, friendly group of crafters for a cuppa and conversation. Open to anyone. You can bring your own project or try something new. Donations are welcome for refreshments and any equipment.





Cheshire Carers Trust


This week we welcomed back our friends from Cheshire and Warrington Carers Trust, who delivered a very informative session on sleep, with particular reference to helping people with additional needs.


I hope they all had a great sleep...or at least started a new routine!!






Wednesday.



It's Riff Shop day, a chance mid-week to let your hair down, play some guitar and maybe learn something new. Have a cuppa and a chat with our friendly gang and let your troubles and stresses melt away.


This week the Ed's Riff Shop gang were busy preparing a setlist for their first-ever gig at the Arts Fair at Alexanders. We had a few nerves, and possibly not enough time to prepare....But our boys (and girls) will be great!










Writing.

Its an exciting time at the Boat Shed's Writers Cafe as we prepare to publish an Anthology of new poetry by Curtis Elory, a member of the group for quite some time, from the very early days of the 'Write Course'.


Our writer's cafe is a time to spend some quality time just you and your writing, and get some peer evaluation or guidance for our group leader, published author, playwright, and screenwriter, Laura J Harris. We emphasise the importance of writing for wellbeing and take some time to reflect on the week with our weekly check-in and stream of consciousness writing.


We would also like to express a massive congratulations to Amy-Lou Harris on the publication of your play by Chalice Books. A local publishing company from our sister company Chalice Media. These will go on sale soon, and we will keep you posted on the progress of Curtis's book in the near future.


Saturday


The Big Day At Alexander's!!


It's safe to say that some of us overcame our fears and played our hearts out at Alexander's!! Thank you to everyone who joined us and stuck around to see us play. Well done to those who did solos and performed their own material.....






We took a Boaty family trip out to see our very own Rebekah McGloughlin take to the stage at the Little Liverpool Theatre Festival.


A huge congratulations to you Becky. It was no easy task filling a stage for 50 minutes all by yourself but you did yourself and the Boaty proud.


Rumor has it that if you missed it in Liverpool, there might be a chance to catch it at the Boat Shed in August! Watch this space for details!!
