'Street '  -  10am-12 noon   -  a FREE event organised by the Brewery Arts Centre, Imitating the Dog Theatre Company and Highlights at the Westmorland Room, Arnside Educational Institute, Church Hill. 
'Street' is one of 40 new projects taking place in and around 40 arts centres as part of 'Here and Now', a national and local celebration of culture within communities. Supported by Arts Council England and Future Arts Centres, marking the National Lottery’s 25th birthday.
'Street' is a collection of real stories from the people of Cumbria, retold in a walk-through multi-media installation.
Take a stroll through our miniature street, peer in through the windows and see and hear a multitude of stories of Cumbrian life played out. From the comings and goings of everyday life, stories emerge of arrivals and departures, life’s tragedies and joys, of loneliness and togetherness, of our differences and of the hopes and dreams which ultimately unite us.
We are collecting stories across Cumbria – from Barrow to Brough, and Carlisle to Kendal and the villages and towns in between.
So come and join us at one of the sessions nearest you – we’ve got the kettle on – just pop in and see us

Opera North - following on from their hugely successful visit to Arnside last year we are over the moon that Opera North are coming back to Arnside - this time with two shows:

Green Eggs and Ham - 2.00pm is the perfect introduction to opera for 4 - 7 year old and their families. Meet the hilariously persistent Sam-I-Am, on a mission to persuade grumpy grouch to try a delicious plate of green eggs and ham! The classic Dr. Seuss book is beautifully brought to life, teaching us all (even the grown-ups) the very important life-lesson - you cannot know what you will like until you have tried it!
Written by Robert Kapilow, the show features two opera singers and a nine-piece orchestra. This short performance will begin with an interactive workshop introducing families to the music, instruments and themes within the piece.
Tickets are £6 and may be reserved through Sue Hayward suediane57@gmail.com 01524 762254 or bought online www.operanorth.co.uk

Whistle Stop Opera - The Marriage of Figaro - 7.30pm is a 45-minute whistle-stop tour of Mozart's playful opera. Figaro and Susanna are getting married, but trouble clouds the horizon. The lecherous Count Almaviva is out to bed the bride, the lovesick playboy Cherubino keeps landing himself in hot water and, to top it all, if Figaro cannot repay is debt to Marcellina the housekeeper, he'll have to marry her instead!
Be entertained by four professional opera singers and an accordionist in this short opera packed with mistaken identity, misunderstanding and comic twists. This is the perfect chance to experience the magic of opera!
Tickets are £9 for adults and £4 for children and may be reserved through Sue Hayward suediane57@gmail.com
01524 762254 or bought online at www.operanorth.co.uk
