Winchester Then and Now
Working with primary schools in Winchester, Wet Picnic are partnering with Heritage Lottery to explore World War 1 and the impact that the war had on the local community. The children will be taking part in drama and history workshops, visiting local museums, exploring artefacts and visiting key sites to re-imagine the lives and stories of people during the war. This will all culminate in a celebratory performance for friends and family with the creation of their own exhibition featuring the research they have carried out.
This project will be running from March 2016 to July 2016
YOUNG ROOTS - BATTLE FOR POWER
In partnership with Heritage Lottery and Hampshire Cultural Trust, Wet Picnic are working with students from three colleges to explore Anarchy within the Civil War. Students will be going on research trips and will be working with our practitioners in sound, creative writing and physical theatre workshops to shape and create their own theatre in exploring their local heritage within the Civil War period. The young people taking part in this project are leading their own exploration of this heritage through research, interpretation and then culminating in a performance at The Hat Fair in Winchester as well as creating podcasts which will feature on the HCT website.
Watch this space for updates, blogs and videos as the project develops!
This project will be running from March 2016 to November 2016
