Sparks! Light up Newcastle's Night Sky - Dec 20

Earlier at Bonbar (see Alice Grace & Ben Helm review) Alice Grace mentioned that one of her 'day job' projects would soon be entertaining Northumberland Street's throng of festive shoppers. As darkness fell on Newcastle city centre a costumed drumming troupe illuminated the early evening scene. 
 
Sparks! play it loud, their faces those of the menacing clown. The beat of the drum (www.worldbeatersmusic.com) stopped shoppers in their tracks, the very youngest, captivated by the scary figures in their midst, were invited to nudge one of the troupe thus creating a rippling comic domino effect, the drumming quintet, as one, making as if to fall. Cabaret, circus, street theatre, Sparks! certainly lived up to the name!
