Since November 2020, Stacey Williams, head of drama at Woldingham School, has worked tirelessly alongside her sister, Emma, and partner, Max Hooper, to create a community hub encouraging involvement in the performing arts. From their base in Grange Meadow, Bletchingley, the Aelfa Arts Hub team have combined their passions to forge a truly creative environment.
Their first event, ‘Captain Hook’s Holiday Hullabaloo’, on Sunday 29 August, was a great success, providing an interactive theatre experience for families. Audience members enjoyed an engaging and humorous performance, with refreshments available from a converted horse box. The show proved a big hit with the children, who helped Captain Hook find Peter Pan, using treasure maps made during the interval.
Keep your eyes peeled for more to come from this team, who are now planning “for Halloween, Christmas and beyond, to provide theatrical experiences for all!”
