Chatteris, March and Wisbech libraries hosting top class acts
‘The Library presents. . .’ – a programme bringing high-class affordable arts to the libraries at Chatteris, March and Wisbech – is back.
Over the coming weeks and months the highly-successful ‘Library presents. . .’ series will bring comedy, drama, puppets and family activities to our three Fenland libraries.
The highlights will include ‘The Hard Way’, by the enchanting and talented Louise Jordan, telling the story of English Suffragette Hannah Mitchell, which will be performed at Wisbech library.
Other sessions include vocal fun with the popular Opera Dudes at Chatteris library and comedy with Victor and Albert at March library.
The performances and workshops have been hand-picked by over 350 Cambridgeshire library users, who have helped to shape the tailor-made programme. Sessions in Fenland will include:
