The organisers of this year’s Penkhull Mysteries are calling for performers interested in appearing in a staging of The Book of Ruth. The performance will take place on 9th July 2011 on the village green at Penkhull, Stoke-on-Trent. They’re also looking for potential sponsors. They already have some of the performers they need, but Creative Stoke understands that recruiting for actors and backstage hands is still underway for a little while longer. Selected performers will need to be available for rehearsals from 7th May 2011. Interested? Call Greg Stephens on:  01782 871691.

The Burslem School of Art, in the north of Stoke-on-Trent, now has several rooms and studios to let…

* Art studio (unit) — small and therefore cost-effective — suitable for media, arts, business.

* Training rooms — large, well serviced and can either be one suite or two as its served by a full acoustic partition. Would suit offices, training, etc.

* Large Studios — beautiful rooms benefiting from on street access with excellent light and original features. suitable as studios, offices, shop, training, galleries etc.

The pricing ranges, and the School can discuss this if there is an interest. But all spaces benefit from: staff car parking; managed workspace, so effectively the School operates a “front of house service”; low rents; low costs (heating, plus rates-subsidy included); beautiful circulation space (galleries etc) that is cool in the summer; coffee shop and restaurant conservatory.

The tenancy is an “easy in/out”, being done on a monthly license rather than a binding long-term lease. This is advantage for projects or temporary programs, etc. If anyone is interested please get in touch with the office and arrange to the spaces/chat about the services.
