And if local youngsters fancy trying their hand at some of Motionhouse’s moves, the company is offering free workshops to young people at 1.30 and 4pm on the day of the performances. To sign up to the workshops call Samantha Moore on 01926 887052 – places are limited, so book your place now!

 The performances and workshops mark the start of the FUSION project for young people of secondary school age in Warwick that takes place from 3 – 7 August. Youngsters taking part in this free project will have the opportunity to work with Motionhouse to create their own piece, to be performed on Market Place on 7th August 2015.

FUSION is a partnership with Warwickshire Libraries and the Lord Leycester Hospital and is supported by the King Henry VIII Endowed Trust. For more information on how to sign up for the FUSION project, call Samantha Moore on 01926 887052.

We were feeling just a little bit sad as we packed up our gear to leave Tamworth today.

We’ve had such a great time here with the amazing people of Tamworth. Today’s show was as great as yesterdays were! What a crowd. So exciting to be there in the heat of the action.

Here is one participant Amber talking about her experience of being in Tigress.

Here are some brilliant pics from today:

Tamworth you definitely rock!
