Thurnscoe Regeneration CIO will utilise a brand new community space in the centre of Thurnscoe to hold a grand opening and Jubilee Celebration event in June. We want to reach out to all residents and the wider Dearne community and invite them to come along and enjoy a spectacular event including bespoke creative performances in our beautiful new public realm space. The event will feature theatrical and musical performances to reflect both the Jubilee theme and the geographical setting. We are working collaboratively with MarkMark Productions Theatre Company to develop a new piece of theatre especially for the Jubilee which will take into account the unique character of the area. The event itself will commence with MarkMark Productions setting off their coloured smoke and confetti cannon at 12 noon. They will continue to deliver 3 customised static performances and a number of character walkabouts throughout the rest of the day to engage with and entertain the crowds. We have also requested appearances from the popular Thurnscoe Harmonic Male Voice Choir to give performances during the event. Our choice of artists is in response to the open air nature of the event and the impact they are able to have. Nothing like this has ever happened in Thurnscoe before and we are sure of a very positive response from the community, especially as it will coincide with the opening of the Plaza itself. The Plaza is the culmination of years of consultation, planning and hard work and all residents are very much aware of and looking forward to the grand opening event and community picnic.
