Well, I’ve never been hugged so much after a Buzzing! performance as I was in Bridlington last Friday! Here I am with some of the great huggers of Bridlington:
My performance took place at North Bridlington Library, for an audience from Priory View. They sang and shouted very lustily (at the appropriate moments!) in the show. And they learned the difference between bluebottles and greenbottles, and how many spots ladybirds have, and how many eyes spiders have. And by the end of the show, they were turning into proper scientists, joining in with the Latin names for the creatures in the show! All very apt for a show put on as part of the BIS Learning Revolution Festival.
Our host, North Bridlington Library, is a fantastic place. It’s a large, light, modern building offering great facilities. I was very warmly welcomed there by all the staff, to whom many thanks (especially to David Roberts for taking these fab. photos, Margaret Helliwell for her excellent directions and efficient organisation, and Paul Hughes-Buchanan for his assistance setting up).
Thank you also to Mai Lin Li, who organised events for the project in our region.
Most importantly, happy bug hunting to everyone from Priory View! With a bit of luck, you might even be able to see butterflies around before winter sets in. (We’ve had Red admirals, a Comma and a Small copper in theBigBuzz garden in York in the last week.)
