Filed under: Uncategorized — richardswancott @ 6:21 pm

Despite the miserable weather, there are still plenty of good things happening in and around Stoke.  Don’t forget, we’re still looking to find out what you love about the area in our really short survey.

Here are some of the best stories from today.

HIT MUSICAL FEATURES NULC STUDENT

RENT had an amazing opening night at Hanley’s Mitchell Arts Centre last night.

The cast includes a local student, Kath Walton who studies at Newcastle-Under-Lyme College. The college announced on Twitter that they will be opening a new Performing Arts Centre in 2014.

The show tells the story of poor young artists and musicians that are struggling in New York City’s Lower East Side beneath the shadow of HIV / AIDS. The audience is shown how love and life can triumph.

The show is running until November 2nd.

Students can get in for just £6 tonight and tomorrow (31st October), provided they take their valid student ID.

You can buy tickets here.

100 YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS SIGN UP TO LOCAL COMPETITION

Students from 6 schools will be participating in this year’s Young Enterprise competition.

The teams will be coming from Newcastle-under-Lyme School, Leek’s Westwood College, Wolstanton High, Blackfriars School and St Joseph’s College.

The competition gives youngsters between the ages of 15 – 19 the opportunity to run their own business.

Maybe they’ll uncover the next Richard Branson! 

CAN YOU SPOOK THE SENTINEL?

The Sentinel wants you to send them your paranormal pictures.

They can be of pumpkins you’ve carved, family and friends in fancy dress or even any snapshots of the afterlife you may have!

Halloween is a tradition that has been around for many years.

“In the north [of Staffordshire] (and also in Cheshire and North Shropshire), the festival of All Souls, November 2nd, is celebrated by parties of lads and children going round to all the principal houses begging for apples — and formerly for cakes and ale.” – C S Burne, 1896.

 

There’s plenty of positive stories around Stoke and North Staffordshire, if you’ve got one for us to share, send it along to info@richardswancottassociates.co.uk and we’ll publish it.
