APRIL 2014

We once again helped to choreograph the hugely popular Hereford Gang Show that sees hundreds of Beavers, Cubs, Brownies, Guides and Scouts take to the Courtyard stage for a Variety performance.

April also saw 60 children aged 6-16 attend our Easter workshop at Hereford Sixth Form college. This workshop was dedicated to the lives of 8 young girls who died in April 1916 when they were trying to raise money to buy things for the members of the Herefordshire Regiment who were serving in Gallipoli. There were 40 performers, mainly young girls whose fathers were serving in the regiment. The theme was Winter Wonderland and the girls were dressed as Eskimos and snow maidens in costumes made of cotton wool. A fire started, rumoured to be from the spark of a discarded cigarette, and the girls costumes caught fire. Six girls died on the night and two died later of their injuries.
