New Panache Dance Fitness classes

There’s a brand new dance fitness class in town, featuring iconic music from the stage and screen, now brought to you online by Sedgefield resident Sharon Gooch who, in normal times, teaches Clubbercise at The Hub.

The classes are a lot of fun as Sharon brings her passion for enjoyable exercise to each session, to lift your mood and boost your mental, as well as your physical health.

Classes are held at 6pm on Thursdays and the 18th March class will be a charity class for both Red Nose Day and in support of local resident Liz Norman, who has challenged herself to run every day for 365 days to raise funds for Cancer Research following the loss of her uncle.

Bring back your dancing days, join the class that makes you feel like a cast member in a rehearsal, and learn routines that feature dance moves from the Jive, Charleston and Salsa to songs from hit musicals such as Mamma Mia and Grease!

For more details, look for Panache Sedgefield on Facebook, visit the website - www.panachedancefitness.co.uk or call Sharon Gooch on 07766 700892.


Sir Anthony Gormley’s Great Big Art Exhibition

Sir Anthony Gormley’s work has made a big impact on the North East landscape and now he is using his influence to harness the creativity of communities across the UK to create a large-scale national arts exhibition throughout March & April.

Inspired by the rainbow paintings we saw during the lockdown of March 2020, the ambitious project aims to encourage us to create our own masterpieces & exhibit them in the windows & gardens of our homes. Whether it be painting, sculpture or drawing, anything goes & we are all invited to participate & to take part in the biggest art exhibition in Britain.

Sir Anthony hopes that the initiative will help to foster hope & optimism while the catastrophic economic & social costs of lockdown are felt by millions of us, and that “every window sill or garden or balcony will suddenly become a gallery or a plinth...”.

The event is hosted by Colchester-based visual arts organization Firstsite. They are providing free activity packs to help the creative process. To receive a pack, visit www.firstsite.uk/download-artist-activity-pack


Beamish Museum Lectures

While Beamish open air museum is currently still closed, we can still attend the lively and educational sessions hosted remotely each Monday during March, and learn more about the history & culture of the North East.

The free afternoon sessions ran successfully during February, and covered topics including Victorian Schooling & pit village living.

This month will cover local topics of art & historical interest, such as the work of Norman Cornish (March 8th) & an examination of the life of Mary Ann Cotton (March 15th). Attendance is free of charge, and is hosted via Zoom. Visit the link below to register in advance:
