Arts Programme gets off to flying start in Hattersley


The "Engage Arts" programme gives youngsters 8 to 16 the chance to be involved in weekly innovative and exciting theatre arts projects on their own doorstep.

Tameside Council started the project in Hattersley and then rolled it on to Droylsden,they are very impressed by the response and have plans to extend the scheme tp Denton and Hyde.

By the end of the year the young people on the scheme will be able to take place in the "War Horse" project in which Tameside Council is participating with the Lowry and The National Theatre.
