Opening afternoon tea party

The official opening of Sistershow Revisited is soooooo soon.

We hope you will join us for the opening afternoon tea party from 12-4pm on Saturday 7 May at Centrespace Gallery.

Here’s the programme:

12pm-1pm Informal browsing of the exhibition, tea & cake

1pm – 1.15pm Official opening and welcome by Sistershow Revisited Curator, Deborah Withers and Heritage Lottery Fund representative, Cherry Ann Knott.

1.15-2.15pm Responses to the exhibition by Sistershow members.

2.15pm – 2.45pm Tea Break, informal browsing

2.45 – 3pm Discussion of Jackie Thrupp’s design style, led by Jan Martin, Sistershow Revisited designer.

3- 3.30pm Susan Croft: Unfinished Histories. Alternative theatre historian and curator of the Unfinished Histories archive project talks about the history of feminist theatre in the 1970s

3.30-4pm Re-creating Sistershow. Using the song-sheets, guitar chords and the small amount of musical notation that was written down, we will finish the afternoon with a collective singsong based on the music used in Sistershow performances!

The tea party will be followed by an evening performance by Breathing Fire from 7-9pm.

The tea party is free to attend. The evening performance costs £5-10 sliding scale entry, which includes the cost of the exhibition catalogue for one night only! No one is turned away due to lack of funds.

See you there!
