Celebrating creatively at Wingfield Barns

The rain stopped raining, the wind stopped blowing and the sun came out and shone on our Creative Celebration at Wingfield Barns this Wednesday, 4th March.

Two dancers creating a performance in response to participants' suggestionsThe highlight of the day was Tim Casson and dancers, who chatted with participants and created an original dance in response to all they’d seen and heard. Children gasped with delight as they recognised their dance moves; as one child remarked afterwards, ‘That was me – I created that dance’.
