Pantomime - A Very English Tradition

Lecture | Headlam Hall Hotel

Monday 6 November 2017 - 11:30 until 15:30

Variety, spectacle, cross-dressing, well known stories and audience participation - the ingredients for the most popular of theatrical traditions - the Pantomime. This lecture will be given by Laurence Sach, a well-known local figure in the theatrical world. He writes as a drama critic for the Northern Echo as well as directing productions for the Castle Players of Barnard Castle. Tracing its origins, influences and development through the centuries, he will provide a lively insight into this enduring seasonal entertainment. The event will take place at Headlam Hall, built by Henry Birkbeck and his wife Anne in the 17th century.

This event has been organised by the Durham and Cleveland Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
