I supported Almost Always Muddy to raise funds for building a portable venue for an immersive, improvised family theatre show, encouraging children to explore risk and creativity. The funds raised were matched by Arts Council England, doubling the money available for the creative team to work with.
The team built their portable venue – The Story Yard – featuring specially designed building materials and lots of gorgeous junk: fabric, wood, netting, buckets and more, letting them take a magical family show right into the hearts of communities who don’t have access to the arts. They have now completed their initial tour through Battersea Arts Centre’s Community Touring Network, with recent performances in the Wales Millennium Centre.
