This specially adapted Folkworks school’s show is suitable for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 students. A festive and fun show that all will enjoy, this introduces young people to folk and traditional music, song and dance.

A mixture of gig, dance show and panto, join the BBC Award Winning team of musicians & dancers for the very best of festive live music, song and dance!

“Featuring ‘folk powerhouse’ The Demon Barbers; artists from Breaking Tradition Dance Company; a new seasonal repertoire and a ‘slightly unhinged’ approach to their family friendly stage shows, they are ‘guaranteed to raise weary spirits and send an audience home smiling!” The Telegraph

“Some shows demonstrate great skill and technique, some offer strong musicianship, and some create the kind of atmosphere and energy that leaves you high on life. The Lock In does all three” The List (Edinburgh Fringe)

“A full-on show of such blazing energy and joyous ingenuity you scarcely ponder on the apparent madness of trying to marry folk dance and hip hop.” The Independent

“The Lock In is infectious and gets under your skin to the extent you stop analysing and start just enjoying. Certainly the best night out in town.”

To book, please call our Box Office on 0191 443 4661. Please note, online booking is not available for this event.

Group booking offer: one free ticket available for every 10 purchased. To book please call our friendly Box Office staff on 0191 443 4661.
