Regent Street, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6GR
Join Minerva Arts as they share their ‘Souling’ project in a brand new piece of outdoor performance for all the family.
Since January, Cheshire arts education and development charity Minerva Arts have been working with young people and community groups across Cheshire to explore the heritage of ‘Souling’ a traditional form of Folk Drama unique to Cheshire. Through research, oral history, drama and song, the plays and their relevance to the area have been revealing themselves to local communities where the tradition has been long forgotten or simply hidden.
In this unique piece of street performance, the team will share, not the original play as recorded, but a slightly different version created by the groups with whom we have been working over the past months.
Be warned- audience participation is required…!
- Saturday 9 September: Performance 12:00, 13:30 & 15:00
No booking required
Regent Street is pedestrianised.
This is a street performance. Each performance will last approximately 20 minutes. Regent Street is in the town centre, with cafes and restaurants close by.
