What is it like to be you?What are the stories of your community?

Working with theatre director, Alan Lyddiard, you will create great theatre based on your stories. Tell a story about yourself, perform an anecdote about your life, or simply share the funny things that have happened to you.

They are working on a theatre project with older artists called Anniversary, and you can help us in the process. Together we can create something special with a bit of music, a bit of a dance and a lot of conversation!

Come and meet like-minded people and share your stories. Sessions will be accessible and fun – absolutely no experience necessary.

If you need help getting there, or would like to discuss your access needs, let them know.
