image001I am writing to tell you about PRIORY TALES which will be performed by young people from Creative Youth Development (formerly Wirral Youth Theatre).

The history of Merseyside’s oldest building, the 800-year-old Birkenhead Priory, will be told by the young people through dance, drama, music, film and photography.

It promises to be a magical journey around the Priory’s remarkable history and architecture, as seen through the eyes of the young people involved in the project, which is based at Pilgrim Street Arts Centre, near to the Priory.

More than 200 young people have been involved in creating the mixed media production, inspired by the building’s ancient history, and as it stands today.

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Young Roots, Creative Youth Development has collaborated with The Lantern Company, MultiVox music project and VidA Creative Learning to produce this celebratory performance.

The performances will also be a lantern parade and a medieval market place with food and entertainment.

Performances will take place at the historic site on Thursday and Friday, 9 & 10th April 2015, with two separate performances a night at 6.30pm and 8.30pm.

Tickets are only £3 for young people and group rates can be arranged. To book please call 0151 647 3160

Kind regards,
