12th Apr The cast of Tintwistle Primary School’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ set off to stage the Shakespearean classic. But the village children’s version wasn’t being played out in a theatre. It was in a muddy, wooded area close to the South Close school, hence the wellies and waterproofs. The pupils took part in a national event […]
