PART OF FUSE MEDWAY FESTIVAL - Saturday, 31 May to Saturday, 14 June Ragroof Theatre presents Make Do and Mend at The Brook Theatre on Friday, 6 June, 7pm. This uplifting and heart-warming theatre performance takes the audience on a journey back to the 1940s. As the cakes are sliced and the kettle whistles a familiar tune, memories found in a dusty tin are amplified to reveal stories about community spirit, love, loss and hope. The imaginations of the Ragroof team are inspired by people's recollections of life in the 40s and knitted together using physical expression, text, soundscapes, poetry and visual language. Make Do and Mend will appeal to anyone who has thought back to a time in their lives and wanted, even just for second, to try and relive those moments. Suitable for all ages. Tickets are £6. To book call box office on 01634 338338, email boxoffice@medway.gov.uk or visit www.fusefestival.org.uk. Fuse Medway Festival is a celebration of arts and creativity in Medway.
