‘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.

To launch the initiative, people are invited to join the Theatre Orchard and Big Worle teams at the Big Worle Hub on Tuesday 21 May from 10.30am to 1.30pm, where they can find out more and see how they can get involved. The first community activities are being kicked off with the ‘Chapter 1’ creative writing workshops, taking place in the afternoon of the launch – 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.”
