Arts scheme highlights the variety of local theatre

A scheme that brings a variety of art forms to rural communities across Northumberland has released a new line-up of shows, running until June.

The Highlights Rural Touring Scheme will present entertainment at a range of venues.

The programme will showcase new work alongside firm favourites.

And in May, the Seaton Delaval Arts Centre will host Tap Tap Theatre and its family-friendly Captain Morgan and the Sands of Time.
