    The Northern Chamber Orchestra have announced details of their thrilling 2018-19 season, including four concerts at their new home in Manchester, The Stoller Hall, where they are Orchestra in Association.

    The Orchestra, which turned 50 last year and is the oldest professional chamber ensemble in the North West, has announced its new season of concerts which features a host of international classical music stars, including pianist Freddy Kempf, one of the world's finest clarinettists, Julian Bliss, and the Orchestra's newest Artist in Association, the multi-talented cellist and baritone Matthew Sharp, who will also work closely with the NCO's Education and Outreach team. The season also includes the Orchestra's Vice-President Martin Roscoe and, closing the season, world-renowned violinist Chloë Hanslip, who directs the orchestra in a programme of stunning string music.

    Of the new partnership between the Orchestra and The Stoller Hall, Richard Hartwell (General Manager of The Stoller Hall) said: “We’re delighted that, as Orchestra in Association, Northern Chamber Orchestra will play a central role in The Stoller Hall’s programming for seasons to come. Their outstanding reputation for chamber music performance, combined with the quality and range of their soloists, make them a perfect partner with whom to build the Hall’s reputation as an unmissable venue for live music.“

    Tickets for the new season are on sale on Monday 2 July.

    Buxton Opera House, Buxton, Derbyshire

    Calling all “Bingsters”! Bing and his friends are going on tour in the first ever Bing stage show!  Bing Live! will visit the Buxton Opera House on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 February as part of a major UK tour in 2019.

    Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories by pretending, dressing-up and singing songs. Flop and Amma are there to help, but in this magical world of make-believe things don’t always go according to plan…

    The CBeebies favourites are brought to life in a brand new stage production full of fun, laughter, music and magical puppetry. Bing Live! is the perfect first theatre trip for pre-schoolers and their families.

    Going to the theatre… it’s a Bing thing!

    Bing Live! is produced by Minor Entertainment (In the Night Garden Live) and directed by Will Tuckett, guest principal character artist of the Royal Ballet, whose production of Wind in the Willows won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2014.

    The show will also bring together a first-class creative team.  Bing Live is adapted for the stage by Helen Eastman with costumes and puppet design by Tahra Zafar.  As Head of Costume, Hair and Make-up for the Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies staged in London, 2012, Tahra managed the production of 23,000 costumes for all four Ceremonies.  Her film projects include: Star Wars VII The Force AwakensX Men-First ClassHarry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and The Fifth Element and for television: In the Night GardenZingzillas and The Adventures of Abney and Teal.  

    The show will have music by Alex Silverman, sound by Rich Walsh and set design by Samuel Wyer.  The cast of Bing Live are Mia Jerome, Michael Magennis, Hayley Murray, Will Palmer, Alice De Warrenne and Nia Walsh.

    Since its launch on CBeebies, Bing has been a huge ratings hit and is the number one pre-school show on BBC iPlayer.

    Celebrating the joyful, messy, reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments that little ones and the grown-ups in their lives will recognise…whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy.

    The series has won an International Emmy Award in the Kids’ Pre-School category in 2016, a Writer’s Guild Award and a BAFTA nomination for Best Pre-School Series. The animated series, which saw Mark Rylance make his children’s television debut voicing Flop, is produced by Acamar Films.

    Andrew Collier, Creative Director of Minor Entertainment, said “We’re thrilled to be bringing Bing to the stage – we know families throughout the UK love Bing as much as we do, and it’s wonderful to see children’s faces light up when they meet him at the theatre for the first time.”

    Cheshire East Council will once again be hosting its Pride in the Park event this summer, in celebration of the LGBT+ community.

    Ahead of this celebration, Cheshire East Council is calling on businesses to invest in diversity and get their brand seen, by supporting the event and becoming a sponsor for Pride in the Park 2019.

    It doesn’t matter whether you’re a large commercial organisation, small-to-medium enterprise, community group or individual, there are many ways that you can give your backing to this major event in the Cheshire East calendar. Supporting this event sends a strong message that your business genuinely cares about and supports the community, and the positive change that Pride represents.

    This year the event will take place from 2pm-8pm on Saturday 29 June at Queens Park, Crewe, and will be free to visitors of all ages, offering lots of family-friendly entertainment and performances on the day.

    Confide in Kylie – a Kylie Minogue tribute act, has been confirmed as one of the key headline acts so far, with further acts yet to be announced.

    Councillor Stewart Gardiner, champion for equality and diversity said: “Once again this will be a fantastic event for all members of Cheshire East’s LGBTQ+ community and our very welcome visitors from further afield. Your business can be part of this really memorable day, and you will gain very positive brand- recognition for your company by supporting Pride.”

    Councillor Liz Wardlaw, Cheshire East Council cabinet member with responsibility for equality and diversity, said: “I have no doubt that this year’s event will be even bigger than last years, and I’m so pleased that this is becoming an annual celebration in our borough. With equality, diversity and inclusion a huge priority for Cheshire East Council and for our communities, we are looking forward to working with businesses to make a huge success of Pride in the Park 2019.”
