"A sense of humor has been essential during lockdown. Who has not chortled at a funny What’s App or belly laughed through the repeat of a favourite comedy series? This could have been one written by Brad Ashton our next Blackmore Vale u3a speaker. He says: ‘The best thing about my profession was not having to be a performer, watching a good comedian get a laugh, sitting back and thinking, ‘I wrote that’.
To hear Brad’s backstage stories, the Zoom talk is on Tuesday 4rd May at 3pm. For how to link into this or if you would like to share you newly acquired lockdown skills with u3a groups please contact Susan Kidd firstname.lastname@example.org."

Artsreach and Stalbridge Hall presents an Easter Super Spy Interactive Performance Game for Stalbridge 5 to 11 year olds starting on Sunday 11th April and finishing on Sunday 18th April. Both Sundays involve a secure online Zoom Chat with the Angel Exit Theatre, who will explain the rules, set the scene and set up the tasks and challenges to be completed in the days between the two online sessions.
What's it all about?
Marvellous Super Spies leader Mirabel Merryweather, newly initiated Claude Pringle, and all the Super-Spies are under lockdown like everyone else. Unfortunately, they’ve had worrying reports that The Vortex - their rival spy gang - are active and have started luring new spies to the dark side in Stalbridge. Claude and Mirabel need families in those communities to brush up on their Super-Spy skills and help them out on the ground, solving some vital clues to stamp out The Vortex!
How can the children participate?
This brand new, interactive performance game will take the format of two 30 minute interactive sessions at home with Angel Exit Theatre on a private, secure Zoom chat, with a series of fun challenges to complete in between:
Families must have a good internet connection and capacity to access Zoom on a device. (Don’t worry though we will have a back up plan for internet connections being dodgy!).
This experience is aimed at 5-11 year olds living in Stalbridge, who must participate with an adult member of their family, but we strongly encourage the whole family to attend where possible.
Families can also participate from the safety and comfort of their own homes, without taking part in the clue trail. Places are limited to just 20 families per community - so early booking is advised!
