Winner: Best Days of our Lives
With children working alongside professional artists, Best Days of Our Lives was performed at Chester Cathedral and told the story of “growing up and going to school in Blacon”. The project was collaboration between Homegrown Dance Theatre, Theatre in the Quarter and Dee Video, in association with Blacon schools and the Blacon Education Village (BEV).
Told through the eyes of a nine year old boy and his parents, ‘A story about George’ highlights the impact that leading theatre company Theatre in the Quarter has had on this little boy's life and his hopes and dreams for a better future.
