We opened the doors to the phantasmagorical Devonport Guildhall for the second time on the 25th April and had a great evening of film, music, theatre and dance.

The singer-songwriter and guitarist Josie Newton kicked things off on the main stage, followed by an a cappella vocal harmony group called Java 5 who got us all singing along to their repertoire of old favourites.

Attik 360 then took to the stage with Juke Box, a piece created in collaboration with Plymouth Music Zone which was a fun exploration of music and sound. Street Factory impressed with their moves and then Access Theatre had us laughing with their piece, the effects of a tale or two. Katie Ness slowed the pace with her beautiful belly dance and then SpinDrift youth combined contemporary with break dance. Sculptmotion at Roc Creative Arts Project performed two pieces, followed by a moving piece by Jorina Peters and Clare Parker and then last but not least Creative Space – Trace choreographed by a familiar face – Sally Robbins.

We had a brilliant night watching the performers and meeting lots of supportive people and in total raised £270.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the performers, the raffle prize donators, the volunteers, who made sure the evening ran so smoothly, the audience for their amazing support, cheers and applause and the Real Ideas Organisation for the loan of their beautiful building.
