Northern Ballet’s Little Mermaid Theatre Trip

A huge thank you to Milton Keynes Community Foundation for  a recent grant which has enabled us to arrange for 10 of our members – 5 Service Users and 5 Volunteers to attend Milton Keynes Theatre.  On Saturday, April 21st 2018, our happy little band attended a Touch Tour and Audio Described Performance of Northern Ballet’s The Little Mermaid.  They met the dancers, joined in a workshop and were told the story of the ballet before being allowed to feel the costumes.  The grant even enabled us to provide an interval ice-cream.

We have received some very heart-warming feedback:

“I am so grateful for such a wonderful afternoon from beginning to end……..It was quite emotional and I cried with happiness”;

“Great northern hospitality from the Northern Ballet.  Such a lovely afternoon; I wouldn’t have missed it for the world”;

“An experience that will stay with me for ever.  I have kept the programme as a souvenir.  I can’t explain how much I enjoyed it”!

Hopefully, some photos will be available shortly.  A huge thank you to Milton Keynes Theatre and the Northern Ballet Company for this wonderful opportunity.
