flea“Roll Up! Roll Up! The Ukulele Opera is coming to town!”
Follow the Fleas!

After three years in the pipeline, a spectacular community theatre production for the people of Bridport is coming our way… UkuleleOpera presents ‘FLEA!’

Based on an original idea by Sally Vaughan and written and composed by Andrew Dickson the show tells the story of Madame Celine, the devious and exotic ringmistress of an extraordinary flea circus, who reaches an epiphany through her introduction to the ukulele.

After more than 6 years of planning, Bridport Area Development Trust is about to start work on the restoration of the Literary and Scientific Institute building in East Street.  The Grade 2* listed building in East Street has been empty since 1997 and is currently on the national At Risk register.

kioskMrs Margaret Miggins' ice cream kiosk is up for rent.

The kiosk that stands on West Bay esplanade has been there since time immemorial withstanding the battering of the elements and standing the strongest of storms, with Margaret and John serving sustenance to all weary travellers.

playarea_dorset_policeThe concept of a "teenage playground" was developed as part of the first SUMMENTOR – a Summer mentoring project focusing on local junior school leavers who, it was felt, would struggle with the transition to Senior School. Involving children who were disadvantaged, the victims of bullying and rural isolation and, in some cases, with a disability, they were mentored by students from the Sir John Colfox Academy for three weeks over the Summer of 2006.
