Right Up Our Street, who will be opening the St Leger Festival with their DNweekeND event, which runs from September 2 to 4, are asking for volunteers to get involved in the latest performance of the Donco.

Andrew Loretto, project director, from Right Up Our Street, said: “We are really looking forward to hosting the DNweekeND as part of the St Leger Festival and would like to see local people getting involved in bringing the performance to life.

“We are looking for a diverse range of adults for the show – including actors, singers and people who are up for cycling with and operating the giant Donco puppet.
