As part of Lumiere Durham, The Brick Box have been working with groups across the county, bringing people together to share stories and express themselves creatively. Gathering around an Electric Fireside they will use puppetry, storytelling, dance and music to bring these stories to life.  Local residents are invited to join them at one of the special sharing events planned and find out what they’ve been up to.  Each of the groups will travel to Lumiere in November and host the Fireside for a night each, Friday 13th – Sunday 15th November.
