'These Days - The Manchester Peace
On Remembrance Sunday 10th November 2019, Feelgood brought 'These Days - The Manchester Peace Song Cycle' back to the city for a single performance within its historic Cathedral.
Since its remarkable collaborative creation in 2018, featuring original work from 9 composers and a libretto by 'Manchester Poet', Tony Walsh, this unique and inspiring piece has been hailed as an example of what music and theatre can do, to celebrate the best of our past and learn from it too.
"Caroline Clegg and her Feelgood Theatre Productions company have a role all their own: a remarkable example of collaboration, as perhaps only Manchester can do ... "
"Tender ... poignant ...
This performance delivers. "
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 productions teams to share memories with them and to thank all our 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 our contribution to the community and Manchester’s cultural arena.
At 11 am that morning we were proud once again to lead the Remembrance Sunday memorial in Heaton Park, this year for the first time at the Somme Memorial. We began an Armistice event there in 2016 and, after the opening of the Somme Memorial last year, Feelgood will continue to build this 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.
