Balbir Singh Dance Company – Painting the Gods at the Barbour Institute, Tattenhall. This is a special, 2-centre event, new to Tattenhall which combines stunning Indian artistry with a delicious supper. To set the mood, your evening starts at our local Indian restaurant “Tattenhall Spice” where we have arranged for a tasty buffet supper to be available from 6.30pm. Then on to the Barbour at 8.00pm for a show which combines the skills of three dancers, two musicians, a storyteller and a visual artist painting live on stage. Together they are the Balbir Singh Dance Company and create a feast for the senses which depicts a rich panoply of Indian gods – their stories, representations and incarnations – some already known to you and some perhaps less familiar.  The performance is suitable for all ages. Tickets are £16 each* (all ages) available from Jill at The Studio (Worley Court), by email from l.davenport987@btinternet.com or book online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/date/280396.
