Good Chance - a theatre group who build large temporary domes across Europe to hold its creative workshops - will be working in collaboration with Sheffield Theatres for the FreeDome event at Barker’s Pool between February 20 – 23.

Featuring poetry, theatre, live music, workshops, arts, crafts and comedy, Good Chance attempts to create ‘a welcoming space for new connections, conversations and creations’.

An event spokesman said: “We build temporary Theatres of Hope in areas with high refugee populations where we hope to create meaningful opportunities for immigrant and local communities to interact through the arts.”
