Half Term: Where The River Runs: Through Grays and Purfleet

River 1

River 2

Full House Theatre will stage dance theatre performance Where The River Runs this February for Thurrock school children and families – for free.

Where The River Runs is a captivating piece of dance for children aged 4+. It’s the simple story of a stranger trying to cross a river and what happens when water comes to life. This dynamic and beautiful piece will have both children and their grownups enthralled with stunning movement, great storytelling and some spectacular lifts!

Where The River Runs has been funded by Arts Council England through the strategic touring project From Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones, headed up by Full house Theatre in partnership with Luton Culture. The project aims to enable more school children, young people and their families to see more quality family theatre in venues across the UK – including Thurrock’s Thameside Theatre. Selected Thurrock schools will also be given the opportunity to have the piece performed in their school halls.

Thameside Theatre are offering Thurrock families the opportunity to see this high quality, fun and entertaining dance performance for free in St Stephen’s Church Hall on Thursday 16th February at 11am and 2pm, and Gray’s Baptist Church on Saturday 18th February at 11am and 2pm.

Performances in Thurrock are part of a wider UK community tour that includes Leighton Buzzard and Barnsley, and schools throughout Bedfordshire, Bury St Edmunds, Barnsley and Thurrock.
