We are looking for your ideas to make Manchester a better place to live, work and play
Your support will help fund a unique professional production of A Midsummer Night's Dream where young people will have the opportunity to share their own performance by joining a summer school and emerging artists having an internship to work alongside the acclaimed actors and director. Bring a picnic and come and see the show. Chat to us over a cuppa in the cafe, watch a rehearsal and share your ideas. See how you can help shape your neighbourhood park and influence the long term dream. "A Field of Dreams" is a legacy building vision! Feelgood are the new official theatre partner for Heaton Hall and Park and your help will establish an annual programme of drama, music and dance, giving theatre and Feelgood a home in the "cultural gem" of Heaton Park. Theatre in the park will encourage more people to visit and enjoy the park which will increase investment in the community, create employment and training for local people
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
It will benefit the whole neighbourhood, ensuring the park will be enjoyed by everyone for years to come. Feelgood embedding culture in the park through professional music, theatre, dance, family activities and arts will encourage other companies to come to the park and help the long term regeneration of the park and the neighbourhood. Unlike other major cities in the country, Manchester doesn't have an outdoor theatre. We want to change that! We know from past experience that theatre in the park brings people of all ages together to enjoy time in our beautiful Heaton park and simply makes you feel good.
Steps to get it done:
Crowdfunding a summer school is just the start and with your help in this first project, we are starting on a journey to create a thriving arts community and social hub in Manchester's cultural gem, Heaton Park.
