TRAVEL may be limited for many of us but students from South Eastern Regional College (SERC) are off to spread magical cheer at ‘Christmas at the Castle’, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s festive family celebrations, which will take place at Castle Gardens, Lisburn, from 4pm-8pm the next two nights (November 25-26).
Students from the Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Performing Arts, Extended Diploma in Music and Level 3 VCTC in Theatrical and Media Make Up have been commissioned by the council for the festive family event and will be providing entertainment with a newly devised theatrical Christmas play for children.
Spirits will be raised through festive music and children will be transformed into Christmas characters with students’ face painting skills, whilst adults and children alike can expect to enjoy market stalls, a host of performances and, of course, watch out for Santa and his elves.
Jenny Curtis, SERC Lecturer in Performing Arts, said: “SERC has been involved in the council’s festive events over the past nine years. We are absolutely delighted to be commissioned again this year and, for the first time, to involve our music students in what is a fantastic showcase of the wealth of performance and theatrical talent at the college.”
