The kids devised and performed The Lost Tales of Thelma Hulbert Gallery at the Dowell Street-based gallery.

Youngsters from the ‘Masterpieces’ Youth Group at Thelma Hulbert Gallery and Honiton’s SWITCH group joined up with Devon’s Theatre Rush to put on a popular performance.

The kids devised and performed The Lost Tales of Thelma Hulbert Gallery at the Dowell Street-based gallery.

The children involved the audience in the performances around the gallery and the garden revealing the mysteries of Elmfield House, where the gallery is based.

Theatre Rush works with local tales and helps children bring to life the fascinating stories uncovered during a Heritage Lottery-funded project delving into the history of the house.

Georgia Kyriacou said: “What an amazing tour of the house and its history! We really enjoyed it. It was lots of fun.”

Betty Madden said: “I enjoyed participating in this performance - it was a fun experience for everyone.”
