Charlotte Sacco, a member of the Foundation staff at Bath Rugby, has been holding after school dance classes since September with a group of young people from St Gregory’s School. They have been learning a dance routine choreographed by Charlotte, and today they enjoyed showing what they had learnt at Bath City Farm’s Apple and Pumpkin Day. Unfortunately, it was pouring with rain and everyone was a bit damp but they were not put off doing this special performance.
The day provided the ideal opportunity to introduce visitors to the farm to The Crater – a beautiful timber-built, amphitheatre-shaped performance space, sited within a World War 11 bomb crater in the centre of the sheep field. Transforming a relic of wartime destruction into a place for shared entertainment, The Crater will provide a stage for local performers of all ages and abilities to express their creativity, with wooden seating on natural terraces allowing the audience to take full advantage of the farm’s stunning views. They also launched their new natural play space for toddlers – The Fort – which has an interactive water cascade. Both developments were entirely funded with a grant from Biffaward.
Sarah Neale, Administration Assistant from Bath City Farm said: “Charlotte and her students did a great job in adverse conditions and we are very grateful to her.”
