Packed spring programme

It may be cold outside, but a Berwick venue is inviting young and old to get together, escape the rain and wind and make some memories through the magic of cinema, live music, theatre and dance.

The Tortoise and the Hare by Northern Ballet

After its record-breaking Christmas pantomime, Little Red Riding Hood, The Berwick Maltings is intent on continuing to provide brilliant live entertainment over the next few months as well as a regularly updated cinema programme featuring Golden Globe successes and Oscar contenders.

The hugely popular show Here Come The Girls is back for some more music and mayhem on Valentine’s weekend (February 12 and 13), Echo Chamber Ensemble provide a glorious afternoon of Heartstrings Classics (14 Feb), and the very entertaining Northern Ballet are back in town with their latest short ballet for children, Tortoise and the Hare (February 20).

Much like February, March will not disappoint. A tribute to Roy Orbison and The Traveling Wilburys (March 4) offers a chance to relive the magic of the late ’80s, jazz vocalist June James makes a welcome return (March 11) to swing us into Spring, pupils from Longridge Towers School bring the most successful movie musical of all time to the stage in a rock ‘n’ rollin’ school’s version of Grease (March 18 and 19), and the pupils of Berwick Middle School’s perform Shakespeare 4 Kidz musical adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (March 24 and 25).
