Marriage of Minds – free workshops with NST

Join us for free workshops across the city to create a truly special piece in time for our Christmas show, Cinderella opening at the end of November.
Based on the major themes of love and marriage featuring in several shows at NST, the workshops will examine the differences and similarities in the traditions of love and marriage across different cultures in the city. Everyone involved will get the opportunity to express their ideas and traditions in a variety of different ways, from photos and word maps, to contributing to a spectacular piece of costume that would be exhibited here during the run of Cinderella.
The workshops will be run at different places and with some groups that already meet regularly in the city, but everyone is welcome to any of the groups. However, numbers may be limited, so please sign up by emailing:
