A Brinnington craft group recently had a visit from Stockport MP Ann Coffey, during a costume-making session for this year’s performance of ‘Mother Goose’.
The Sewing Bees group meet every Wednesday to socialise and sew, between 10am and 12pm at First House in Brinnington. Every summer they work closely with the P4P amateur dramatics society, also known as Players 4 People, who involve residents of all ages and abilities in an annual pantomime. Those not involved on stage can instead support with set design, costumes, lighting and sound.
Ann Coffey said:
“The Sewing Bees meet all year round when not preparing for the performances, and it’s good to see the skills they learn coming in handy for a great community pantomime that is enjoyed by everyone. The annual performances are a valuable asset to the Brinnington community and I’d encourage everyone to support them.”
Pru Slater from P4P added:
“The pantomime really does bring our community together, involving everyone from babies and toddlers to residents in their 70s and 80s. Over the summer we had Rose and Winnie, two of our youngest performers, join our craft group because they wanted to make their own costumes. They thoroughly enjoyed it and we can’t wait to see them perform in the outfits later this month.”
The pantomime will be performed between 23rd and 27th October at St Mark’s Parish Church, Redhouse Lane, Bredbury, SK6 1BX. Reduced price tickets are available for community groups and charitable organisations. For more information please contact Pru Slater on 07969 777835 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
