Sticklebacks & Swingboats

Chol Theatre, 2018

“Perfect community theatre.”

Bev Adams, Director of Holmfirth Arts Festival

Created with Chol Theatre and Holme Valley Sharing Memories, Sticklebacks and Swinboats was a £25k community project celebrating memories of Hope Bank Pleasure Grounds in Honley. We worked collaboratively with community participants to collect verbatim stories, develop the narrative, and create the design.
