Do you love Roseberry Topping?

Date: Thursday 28th November
Time: 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Venue: Dovecot St, Stockton-on-Tees TS18 1LL

Boff Whalley, a founder member of 1990s chart successes Chumbawamba and Daniel Bye, a writer and theatremaker, are going to spend an evening exploring why Roseberry Topping, the “Matterhorn of the North” means so much to us all in the North-East.

Whether you’re up there every weekend, haven’t been since you were a kid, or just love the sillhouette on the skyline, they want to hear from you.   Runners, ramblers, nature enthusiasts, scout leaders and weekend warriors, all are welcome.

What’s it for? They are gathering thoughts and feelings about Roseberry Topping to write a song about it for a choir to perform. The choir will sing this on Roseberry Topping, sometime in the first half of 2020. If you’re not a singer, though, don’t worry, you don’t have to be to come along to this evening session. But if you do fancy being in the choir, this would be a great first step to learn more.

The evening will be 7pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 28th November at the Studio Theatre, ARC, Dovecot Street, Stockton. It’ll be a mix of discussion and practical exploration.  No skills are required, just a love for that hill!

ARC can accommodate all access requirements, please let them know your needs.  For more information please contact Daniel Mitchelson on 01642 665405, email
