FLAME OUT @ Heart of Hawick – free drama workshops for people over 50


 Are you over 50 and do you have a story to tell?  

Tricky Hat with Live Borders Arts & Creativity are welcoming people aged 50+ to join their performance company The Flames, to create a show at Heart of Hawick that challenges pre-conceived ideas of how older people think and what they aspire to.  

We welcome people from all walks of life and gender identity. No experience is necessary, there is no acting, and you do not need to memorise a script. You just need to be yourself, interact with everyone involved and be up for a possibility! 

Participation is free.
