Subject: RIDING LIGHTS IN YOUR CHURCH
As part of their national tour, Britain's best known Christian theatre company, Riding Lights, will be in our local area between the 22nd March and 1st April 2015. There is an opportunity for you to book them to perform in your church.
Each year, Riding Lights tours between 6 – 8 productions across the UK, their aim being to stage high quality productions and reach a broad audience with work of lasting value.
One of their touring groups is Roughshod. Created in 1992, it was given a specific mission: to take theatre to places it rarely goes (but is greatly enjoyed), and to do it for free at the point of need. This allows them to perform and provide workshops in places such as schools, prisons, homeless shelters, foodbanks, youth centres, community centres, coffee shops; practically anywhere! Over the course of last year, they delivered 242 performances that reached a total audience of 22,327.
As well as booking them for your church, they are particularly interested in any outreach centre you may have links with. You can help them on their journey in spreading the gospel to places it would not otherwise reach.
Please see the attached leaflets, visit their website: www.ridinglights.org/about-roughshod, or for more information and to book them, contact their local hosts:
