"Feelgood are a jewel in Manchester’s theatrical crown…" Manchester Evening News
A heartfelt thank you to all those who attended the performance of 'These Days - The Manchester Peace Song Cycle' on Remembrance Sunday in the wonderful setting of Manchester Cathedral. It was a beautiful performance and a fitting celebration for our 25th Anniversary. It was lovely to see so many members of Feelgood’s past production teams and to share memories with them. It also gave us the opportunity to thank all the creatives, supporters and sponsors who have enabled Feelgood to be the award winning company it is today.
A special thank you to Kathleen T Robinson, Deputy Lieutenant of Manchester and Councillor Luthfur Rahman, Executive Member for Skills, Culture and Leisure for sharing the evening with us and recognising Feelgood's contribution to the community and Manchester’s cultural arena.
At 11 am that morning we were proud to lead the Remembrance Sunday event in Heaton Park once again, this year for the first time at the Somme Memorial. We began an Armistice event in the park in 2016 and after creating the poignant unveiling ceremony of the Memorial last year we will continue to do this each year ensuring a lasting legacy. We were delighted that the leader of Manchester City Council, Sir Richard Leese joined us alongside dignitaries and hundreds of members of the public.
The Board of Trustees and I are now planning exciting things for the future which we will unveil in 2020.
In the meantime, we wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a new year full of joyful artistic adventures.
Caroline Clegg, Artistic Director
Feelgood Theatre Productions
Celebrating 25 Years
Founded in 1994 by Caroline Clegg Feelgood's mission is to create theatre with a definite sense of risk and adventure that delights audiences young and old with the sheer joy and surprise of live theatre.
Bold productions at traditional and site-specific venues world-wide have enthralled 350,000 audience members and 14,500 workshop participants at site specific and traditional venues.
We have flown aeroplanes in for the start of a show, jumped off cliff tops and created spectacular shows in Africa, Europe and the West End;
We have employed 650 creatives through 35 original productions, 15 world premieres, 30 new compositions and 35 education programmes.
Feelgood's roots are firmly embedded in great story telling and outstanding production values. We have been honoured with multiple awards and 2016 saw our triumphant return to Heaton Park and Hall where we are now the resident stakeholder theatre company, creating spectacular site-specific, outdoor promenade and hauntingly beautiful indoor commissions.
"A remarkable example of collaboration, realised by Caroline Clegg and Feelgood...
it made for an absorbing and
very moving experience."
"Tenderly articulated stories told eloquently through song ... The night ends positively with a rallying call to us all to have open minds and hearts; and to
fly kites not drones."
