Our work exists at the intersection of community, heritage and culture.
We are a charity that builds long term relationships with councils, schools, community leaders, and heritage buildings to spark a growing culture of arts events and activities in local areas.
We bring communities together to experience their local history or rediscover an old classic in a new context, and help to raise awareness of their core heritage buildings and how they might generate a new income.

It can start with something small, such as a rehearsed reading, music, online resources, a short film or interactive activities.
Heritage should be alive and engaging, so we make our work interactive, affordable and bespoke. We often work with sites who have little to no experience of hosting events, to create an effective model for their future events that keeps these spaces alive and funded.
With more established partners our plans grow larger: we accept commissions, create holistic events, may be hired for private functions, and stage site-complementary adaptations and plays.
High quality arts should be accessible to all audiences regardless of means, prior experience, or geography. From our base in South West England we tour nationwide, taking our knowledge, experience, and high quality productions and workshops to all manner of communities.

Since the pandemic, many children have missed not only two years of in-person teaching, but also the opportunity to access key social experiences.
Drama relies on communication and teamwork, and gives students the opportunity to build their confidence in a safe environment. Overwhelming feedback from teachers has been their delight at seeing how our workshops not only began to bridge that gap, but also gave students who had been struggling a new way of working which created an equal footing with their classmates.
