Platform8 – a festival of theatre for Peterborough
Platform8 is Peterborough’s new theatre festival, with shows, workshops and exhibitions popping up in Hampton, Bretton and the City Centre from 8-12 November, organised by Jumped Up Theatre Company, working with London’s award-winning Battersea Arts Centre.
“It’s going to be five days of fun, laughter, music, dancing and dreams” says Creative Producer, Kate Hall.
Castle Builder, on Friday 10 and Sat 11, is like a TEDtalk mixed with a rock concert, where Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet share their passion for making things; shows, buildings, toys for their kids, art. With great music and humour, you will go away feeling happy.
Also at The Undercroft Theatre in Serpentine Green, Hampton, is Super Mega Rockin’ Rock Show, it’s like the Mighty Boosh for kids, suitable for all families who like to rock out.
There is more for children at The Pyramid in Bretton with five shows of Almost Always Muddy, where you build, play and be part of a story about fear and courage.
And if you want more, get to The Key Theatre on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 November for Ross & Rachel, a dark comedy about what happens with love that never dies.
And drop into The Dream Catcher, 4-8pm, Thurs 9 – Sat 11 Nov, in The Undercroft in Serpentine Green – a film and Virtual Reality installation about Peterborough’s dreams.
