We kick off with a specially commissioned new play rooted in our village and performed by pupils of Cullercoats Primary School. Seeing the 1969 moon landing on TV, Cullercoats lad Zephaniah Haddock is inspired to go into space. Borrowing a ladder from a window cleaner, he climbs up and gets distracted into stealing a star. But a stolen star is a serious business, especially when it is opened up and before long the star begins to devour everything around it - including the Crescent Club - and just who can stop it? Peter Mortimer’s comic fantasy includes music, mime, choreography and physical theatre. The evening’s opening music comes from North Tyneside Steelband, the region’s finest and most exciting young persons musical combo.
Don’t Forget 10 till Midnight, the Festival Club at the Salt House.
