‘Becoming Stories’ – a new major multi arts project by Theatre Orchard and Big Worle

We’re excited to join Big Worle on a year-long venture to showcase Worle and shine a light on the community! The ‘Becoming Stories’ project will draw out past and present tales from people and places and tell them through a creative programme of live arts, including drama, writing, poetry, dance, film, circus, music and song.

The wide range of activities designed to engage everyone, will culminate in a ‘Becoming Stories’ Arts Festival in May 2020, which will place the community centre-stage in a day of performance and celebration.



The first community activities are already underway with the ‘Chapter 1’ creative writing workshops – click HERE for details and to see what other amazing events are in the pipeline.

“We take very seriously our development role within the arts and cultural sector: it is part of our job to nurture and support emerging artists and organisations and we are committed to the development of artforms within this. Theatre Orchard’s work is a really strong example of where small amounts of investment can have a big impact on the local communities and we look forward to seeing their continued legacy.”
