Local participants needed for spectacular outdoor performance in Cleethorpes

An unmissable opportunity has been announced today for local participants to take part in a spectacular outdoor performance in Cleethorpes at the end of September.

It’s a chance for local people to be part of something truly extraordinary, and there’s no previous performance experience required – just a willingness to get involved and a desire to make a magical event happen in their hometown.

The Twilight Hour is an outdoor show inspired by Cleethorpes’ folklore and heritage, brought to life by internationally recognised performance company Periplum and produced by From the Fields, the team behind popular festivals Kendal Calling and Bluedot.

The performance will take place in Cleethorpes Meridian Showground on the banks of the Humber estuary on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th September from 9pm – 10pm.

Set in the magical hour between twilight and darkness, the show will feature live theatrical performances, impressive puppetry and dazzling pyrotechnics.

4,000 people will enjoy the immersive spectacle each night as tales of mythical characters, half-forgotten memories, and even stories of the supernatural come to life in the very centre of Cleethorpes.

Organisers are on the look-out for 20 local participants to be part of The Twilight Hour alongside Periplum’s team of professional performers.

It’s an unmissable opportunity for people who want to have a real one off experience, be part of something unforgettable, and have a go at something new in their local community.

During the show, participants will accompany the Periplum performers and move through the audience with visual props, fire torches and other pyrotechnic effects.

They will take part in a series of performance workshops and training sessions, including fire and pyrotechnic safety training, with the Periplum team to get ready for the live shows.

Interested participants must be aged 18 or over and need to be available for workshops and training on Wednesday 22nd September (6pm – 9.30pm) and Thursday 23rd September (6pm – 10.15pm), as well as the two performances on Friday 24th September (6pm – 10.15pm) and Saturday 25th September (6pm – 10.15pm).

Please note that the show has loud music and noise effects, smoke effects, fire and pyrotechnic content which participants will be in close proximity to.

To sign up for this exciting opportunity please contact Aimee Vickers on assistant@fromthefields.co.uk by Wednesday 15th September.

The Twilight Hour is funded by Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and North East Lincolnshire Council. Commissioned by From the Fields. Written and created by Periplum. The Twilight Hour has been adapted from The Witching Hour by Periplum, commissioned by Absolutely Cultured and Wirral Borough of Culture.

Tickets for the show are completely free. There are limited numbers still available at www.festivalofthesky.co.uk.
