The Courtyard will be hosting a Rags to Riches Trashion show this November to celebrate its annual pantomime which, this year, is Cinderella.
The Trashion Show will be held at the Hereford Round Table Firework event at Hereford Racecourse on Saturday 2 November.
The Courtyard are looking for creative individuals from the community who are willing to make and model garments with the theme of ‘Ball attire’ completely out of recycled materials (e.g. trash).
“We’re really excited to be organising the Trashion Show with the help of Hereford Round Table and Sunshine Radio” says Marketing Officer Ruby Thorogood, “It’s a great opportunity for us not only to promote our pantomime, Cinderella, but also highlight the importance of being an environmentally friendly organisation”
The Courtyard have recently established an Eco Group who work together to ensure that the arts venue is as ecologically sound as possible. From encouraging visiting companies to consider their carbon footprint to educating staff on reducing energy consumption, the Eco Group are committed to making sure The Courtyard remains as environmentally friendly as possible.
“We are currently road mapping to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.” says Operations Manager Phil Pearcy, “Our Eco Group are also undergoing full carbon literacy training to help us achieve our goals.”
