The Dancing Club
The Dancing Club is a project celebrating Kidderminster legends Frank & Wynn Freeman. After the war Frank returned to Kidderminster and wanted to set up a dancing club. He inspired a whole town to get dancing and unlocked the creativity inside them. Across decades Frank & Wynn offered a place to go, to be creative, to be safe, to celebrate, and somewhere to access the latest music and dance trends. The Dancing Club became iconic. ‘The Dancing Club’ tells the stories of the communities, families, dancers and the musicians who passed through it. Writer / Director Caroline Jester has been collecting stories and memories of Frank & Wynn across her home town, Kidderminster. She has teamed up with Kidderminster’s Andy Edwards, long term collaborator of Robert Plant, who is working with acclaimed Double Bassist Tom Clarke-Hill making original music for the project. As we build this project we want to know what the people of Kidderminster think. We would want you to come to this rehearsed reading (so expect informal, scripts in hand and fun) and stay for a chat afterwards to tell us what you think.
