Freshers and Free Tickets

Parv and I went to the Fresher's Fayre at Bolton Community College today to talk to the young people there about the Free Theatre Tickets initiative. It was great to see the reaction amongst young people (on the spot research if you will) towards theatre which from some was overwhelmingly positive (hi Performing Arts Students and well done for your performances today - good chatting to you and come and see us soon) and others that were completely disinterested even with the offer of Free Tickets (you know who you are!).

Anyway, here's Parv on the phone trying to get some more brochures which nearly all disappeared in the first hour...

..a selection of the print. Ghosts and Oliver Twist seemed to be the most looked at...

The thing that amused me most was we were between stands for STI testing and the beauty students offering free manicures, hairstyling and other glamourising treatments. Hmmm, I think there is some moral comment about sexuality and sexual diseases that I could make here but I won't....! But it was fitting that the Ghosts print resided in the middle of these two.

Thanks to everyone that came to talk to us.
