Performing in the community to increase understanding of English folk arts and of local heritage and folklore, keeping folklore stories alive in the community.

OUR AIM:


OUR METHODS:

Through performing plays and holding workshops, we will increase understanding both of English folk arts and of local heritage and folklore, keeping folklore stories alive in the community.

We use storytelling, drama, song, legend and folklore to present themes from local history.

Our plays focus on local history to tell folkloric stories that have been forgotten by all but a few.

Walkabouts: Meet and greet Flash the Dragon accompanied by the bold and fearless slayers: St Leonard and Uther Pendragon Junior. Follow them on a quest to the Underworld. Slay the dragon and discover the secrets hidden in the treasure hoard.

We use workshops to enable oral learning of
• traditional songs which are of a local source
• storytelling, with learners making up and enacting their own stories
• English drama, including basic Mummers play technique and guising
