A foretaste of what is to come in the Menston panto (at the Kirklands Community Centre in March), which this year is Aladdin. Dancing in the 2015 show is to be choreographed by the teacher who has been turning Menston youngsters into superb dancers for the past 20 years at Kirklands – Stephanie Clements of Bradford Theatre Arts. Make sure you get your tickets early – it’s always a sell out.
The picture and short video clips here are a little bit of Christmas from some talented Menston pupils who, along with other Bradford Theatre Arts dance pupils from other parts of Bradford, presented a wonderful show based on the Charles Dickens favourite A Christmas Carol at the New Bradford Playhouse at the end of last week. Here’s a taster.
More clips and pictures from the show will be posted on grumpytyke’s personal blog sometime over the holiday period.
Another Christmas present?
Another late Menston Christmas present idea to add to the list in the previous post, suggested by Cllr Dale Smith.
A reprint of a booklet by Michael Ayrton recalling the days of White’s Laundry, another valuable part of Menston history. It’s available from Village News at £15.
