Recent Productions Trading Local Crewkerne - Saturday 31 May 2014

TRADING LOCAL - Ashton Fruit Shop BS3

Join us in Crewkerne on Saturday 31 May when six professional actors stage 48 FREE live performances in shops in the town centre.

TRADING LOCAL began with free writing workshops to create scripts specifically for, and about, the town. 12 were selected for professional production and audiences, residents, shoppers & visitors will see the results on Saturday 31 May.

See a show in the butcher’s as well as a chop; get a story in the barber’s as well as a haircut; hear a tale in the café as well as your coffee brewing. Shop, take in a show; have a cup of tea; see another show; have some lunch – and repeat.

Crewkerne is a fabulous town, and TRADING LOCAL a glorious way to celebrate independent shops. A great day out, and all for free. What’s not to like?

Our audiences say, ‘superb event, truly innovative and imaginative’.
And shops say, ‘Lots of new people came in who’d never been in here before.’

Great to be working with lovely neighbour Windmill Hill City Farm to celebrate their 40th birthday.

A weekend of outdoor performances, all over the farm, to celebrate their 40th birthday (and our 30th!).

Eight great short shows, and four wonderful actors playing all sorts of creatures – spot the crime solving mole, a fox with bags of attitude, and a dove with huge ambitions. Leela Bunce, Rachael Fagan, Kirris Riviere and Chris Yapp bring these and more to life — all weekend, and all free.

Shows 10.30–4.30 both days
