Knit for Victory with Inspector Norse and Aunty Social

Duncan Hodgson finds out about all-new Swedish crime thriller, Inspector Norse, and how you can get involved in making part of the set with local community arts group, Aunty Social.

Inspector Norse comes to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre on Monday the 15th October 2012 and is sure to be a thrilling adventure full of mystery, and of course, yarn. The story centres around ex-pop-star recluse Freya out in her log cabin in the middle of winter and a stranger walking through the frozen wastes in a fur hat carrying a chisel. A couple of days later a body is discovered in a nearby barn and Inspector Sandra Larsson arrives in her rustic knitwear to solve the case.

Inspector Norse is a production from the Lip Service Theatre Company who The Independent have described as “Britain’s favourite literary lunatics.” so as well as being a gripping thriller, we’re sure there will be plenty of laughs in there too.

Local community arts organisation Aunty Social and their Knittaz With Attitude group have been invited to get involved with the production by knitting (yes, knitting!) parts of the set and it’s really easy for you to get involved. The group will provide you with everything you need to knit your way to victory including wool, needles, patterns, light refreshments and guidance for those who are just dipping their toe into the knitting world.

There are three sessions in the run up to the arrival of Inspector Norse each taking place at The Grand Theatre Studio on the 17th & 26th of September and finally Saturday 6th of October for a Scandinavian Tea Party, to which you’re encouraged to wear your knitted jumper and bobble hat! Whether you are a knitting beginner of a crocheting ninja this is an opportunity not to be missed.
