Sparks! Performance Lights Up Rotherham Care Home

Residents at Moorgate Croft residential care home in Rotherham were overjoyed when World Beaters performed their dynamic drum and light show outside the home.

Rotherham council contacted Moorgate Croft to organise a performance of the Spark! street theatre show for the residents as part of the Rotherham Together project. The programme provides cultural events that bring Rotherham’s residents and communities together.

Three performers volunteered their time to entertain the residents in a 20-minute show that combined high-impact drumming, dynamic choreography and beautiful multi-coloured LED lighting design.

Raymond Shaw, aged 92, resident at Moorgate Croft, said: “Simple words: brilliant, fantastic. I could have watched the drummers all night. I would definitely recommend them; it was fantastic that they changed colours. They were the best we have had, and I would love for them to come back.”

Ann Wood, manager at Moorgate Croft, said: “Thank you to Jane at Rotherham council for thinking of us for the Rotherham Together project. Our residents loved the unique show that Sparks! performed outside our windows and are eager for an encore. It was like nothing we’ve ever seen before.”
