Handy with a needle and thread? Have a few hours to spare? We are looking for volunteers to assist with the creation of costumes for the forthcoming community production of A Tale of Two Cities, which will be performed in the Dolphin Centre’s Central Hall in November.

We are looking for those with sewing skills of all levels and or knitting skills. The work will involve making period garments and altering contemporary clothes. Making will include full-length skirts, bustles, waistcoats, cockades, as well as dirtying down costumes and carrying out alterations of garments to fit our cast. All volunteers will work alongside an experienced wardrobe supervisor during the sessions.

Anyone interested should email lyndsey.middleton@darlington.gov.uk or call her on 01325 405510.
