Evolution of creative arts at Mansfield Palace Theatre

Creative arts students at West Nottinghamshire College are pulling out all the stops for a week-long festival of events at Mansfield Palace Theatre, together with a 10-day exhibition at Mansfield Museum.

The main art extravaganza entitled ‘Evolution’ will take place at The Palace Theatre between 8-11 June and will showcase the work of students in the final year of their courses in art and design, graphic design, music, clothing and textiles, performing arts, as well as media and 3D communications.

It promises to be an exciting series of events which includes a contemporary performance of Romeo and Juliet, media film and animation screenings, the ‘Masks on Tour’ theatre performance, a glamorous fashion show, and sounds and inspirations of the last four decades with a live music and dance party.

The art and design exhibition will be officially opened by College Principal, Asha Khemka OBE, at 6.30 pm on Tuesday 9th June for a private viewing for students’ families and friends.  Asha will cut the opening ribbon of the exhibition, which is being displayed at Mansfield Museum and will feature art work from a range of students for the public to view up until 19th June. 

Steve McAlone, Associate Director of Learning for creative arts, said: “This final showcase of our students’ work will portray the evolution itself of our learners’ talents and it represents the metamorphosis of our artists as they complete their journey.

“We hope that the people of Mansfield and Ashfield take up this fantastic opportunity to come see, hear and interact with some really innovative and inventive shows at their local theatre and museum.  They won’t be disappointed.”

All performances are open to the public and tickets can be purchased via Carole Littlewood on 01623 627191 ext. 8295.  Matinee tickets & Evening tickets: £4, Concessions: £2.  Admission to the museum art exhibition is free.
