Amy Nicolson is creative director for Handmade Theatre Company.

She told Gedling Eye:  “We are a company which makes interactive performances for a family audience. To date we have been a touring company taking our shows to national events and festivals. This year we had a huge tour including local gigs at Arnot Hill Park, Gloworm festival and Splendour. Now we have taken on the studio we are really excited to be able to offer more events and activities locally.

“Initially we are launching with the family day and will also be doing Christmas performances for local schools, nurseries and families. Longer term we hope to set up a youth company with weekly drama classes, regular creative workshops for adults and children, training events for students and young professionals and develop our family days. It’s a really exciting time with lots of possibilities.”

Tickets for the event are just £3 or £10 for a family on the door.

You can find Handmade HQ at Unit D21H at Arnold Bizspace on Brookfield Road.
