How long will the performance last?
The performance will last about 40 minutes.
Will there be reserved seating?
No - there will only be limited seating available, children and young people may wish to sit on the floor, others will have to stand (do let us know in advance on [email protected] if you have access requirements that mean you will need a seat). If possible, any prams/pushchairs should be left outside the Great Hall - we will let you know where you can leave them safely on the day.
Can I bring along the whole family?
Yes, the piece is suitable for all ages, you just need to make sure you reserve a free space for everyone who's coming as we have limited capacity in the Great Hall.
Will I be able to just turn up on the day?
We will have some capacity to allow access to the performance on the day (on a first-come-first-served basis), but it is highly recommended that you book online in advance to avoid disappointment if the performance is already fully booked.
Will I be able to get refreshments on-site if the building is closed to the general public?
Yes, if you arrive from 5pm, the cafe will stay open until the performance starts at 5.30pm.
Do I need to bring a printed version of my ticket to the performance?
No, we will have a list of names of people who have booked on the door, or you could bring your ticket confirmation on your phone if you area able to do so.
Are there any other times when I will be able to see the work?
During the day on Saturday 25th May, we will be presenting 2 other performances of The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 at Gainsborough Old Hall at 11.30am and 2pm; join the company after these earlier performances for a free tea or coffee and chat, and dance/craft activities for children and families. For these performances, standard entry charge to the Old Hall applies 11am-5pm; there will be no additional event charge for performances/workshops.
We will also be performing The Imagination Museum: Mayflower 400 at Gainsborough United Reformed Church on the 11th May as part of West Lindsey Churches Festival - these performances will also be free, and will take place at 11am and 2pm - https://imaginationmuseum.co.uk/whats-on/john-robinson-memorial-urc-church

Made By Katie Green is a contemporary dance company using dance, text and music to respond to places where you would not usually expect to find a dance performance. Most recently we have done this through our 'Dancing in Museums' and 'Dancing in Caves' projects. We are interested in telling stories about what it means to be human, what this has meant throughout history and how what has happened in the past affects us now. We want to create vibrant, memorable, moving work, and to do this in all kinds of places for a range of different audiences.
