Lancastrians are invited to lend their voices to exciting new outdoor video projection shows in Blackpool and Lancaster this winter.

100 Stories High is being produced for Blackpool’s Lightpool Festival and Light Up Lancaster by the award-winning digital theatre company, imitating the dog.

The large-scale animated projection will be displayed on prominent buildings in Blackpool on October 28 and Lancaster on November 4 and 5, accompanied by a new soundtrack by composer, James Hamilton.

A choir is needed to bring the soundtrack to life on the three nights but participants don’t need any musical or singing ability, just lots of enthusiasm and an open mind.

To prepare for the performances, two workshop rehearsals will take place in Blackpool on October 5 and 11 from 6.30pm-8pm and two in Lancaster on October 26 and November 2 from 6pm-7.30pm. Choir members must attend at least one rehearsal but preferably two.

They will be asked to perform alongside Lancashire vocal project, Encounter Voices, on at least one of the live event nights but preferably all three. Lancaster’s performance venue is the city’s historic castle while Blackpool’s venue is to be confirmed soon.

The 10-minute projection piece, which plays several times each evening, will use the architecture of the buildings to tell a story about the importance of home, about holding onto memories and sometimes letting go.

Refreshments will be provided at the rehearsals and the live performances. Wristbands for the viewing zone at Lancaster's fireworks spectacular on November 5 will be available too.

Anyone from or based in Lancashire can join the choir including families and young people. The age guidance is 11 plus and anyone aged under 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
