Audio Description (4pm performance only), BSL Interpreted, Wheelchair Accessible
Everyone has a story to tell and a memory to share.
Unlock yours in this family adventure down memory lane, where you’ll experience stories of the people, places, and objects we hold dear.
Having worked closely with care homes that support those living with Dementia over recent years, HandMade Theatre have found music, storytelling and objects have brought to life memories that have been stored away, held close.
This project has allowed them to collect stories, from both older and younger audiences, to look at the journeys of our lives through creative exploration. What does childhood and growing up feel like to different people, at different times, in different places?
The show itself sees musicians, performers and storytellers come together with puppetry and song to tell these stories and unlock memories.
