This year, Black Country Touring is turning 21 years old! To celebrate, we’re sharing lots of stories and memories about the work we have done over the past 21 years. #21Years21Stories
We’d love to hear from you, so if you have a great memory please share it with us here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScR8O3nXE6zl8sxh68EvTATQ-GG3lv9opxryW1sOERuc7Q25A/viewform?usp=sf_link

This memory came from Martin Hughes, a Community Promoter from The Lamp Arts Centre, Brownhills. 

 

Getting the crowds out to an event at the Centre is sometimes a hard sell, then you get a sell-out night like we did with the Greatest Showman sing-along and suddenly you know it’s all been worthwhile. Community spirit can be hard to define, but at its most basic this is what it is: people getting together, barriers breaking down, recognising your neighbour and finding we’ve so much in common. Like the Showman says ‘This is where you wanna be!’
