  • Mr Dean's Marvellous Trip

    Barrow Library

    In the 1900s a lad from Barrow runs away with the circus! To mark the 250th anniversary of the modern circus, Theatre Factory’s Young Producers present their own take on the origins of clowns, what the elephants did on their tea break and the heart ache of a mind reader whose son wants to be an acrobat. Funny, poignant and sometimes downright daft, treat yourself to a show that guarantees fleas that you’ll be itching to see! Theatre Factory 'young producers' is an initiative run by Ashton theatre Company, which gives opportunity for young actors to work in partnership with organisations and agencies in the Barrow community, providing relevant and entertaining new theatre in surprising places.

  • Barrow Library's Teen Market

    Barrow Library

    On 17th November, Barrow Library will be holding a FREE social enterprise market for teenagers to sell handmade items. Young adults between the ages of 13 and 19 are invited to apply for a free stall by completing an application form (available from Barrow Library). We’re hoping to attract a wide range of stallholders and it would be a perfect opportunity for teenagers to earn some money before Christmas. All we ask is that the items for sale are handmade and are realistically priced. The market will be open for anybody to attend and entry will be free.
