Cherwell Theatre Company – ‘Myth’ a new outdoor theatre tour across the Cherwell District

A free family friendly performance will embark on a six date outdoor theatre tour across the Cherwell District this summer.

To mark their fifteenth year producing theatre with and for young people, Banbury’s Cherwell Theatre Company will present ‘Myth’ a new play by Artistic Director, Tristan Jackson-Pate.

“We’re delighted to have received National Lottery funding to deliver this project for our community.” Said Mr Jackson-Pate “In this anniversary year, we wanted to try something different, while continuing build on our reputation for taking theatre into unusual spaces. Open access to the arts is of paramount importance to us, and so we’ve created a free, accessible theatre piece for the community spaces and events Oxfordshire residents value the most” said Mr Jackson-Pate.

Young theatre makers from ‘CTC’ came up with the idea of creating a ‘pop up festival’ style performance exploring Greek mythology, presented alongside other local groups, such as Max Rock music school and the Dhol Show, indian drummers. The production will feature live music, colourful costumes and puppetry, as the company bring to life classic tales from Ancient Greece such as ‘Pandora’s Box’ and ‘Persephone: Queen of the Underworld’.

Mr Jackson-Pate would also like to encourage other community groups to join the fun. “Whether you host a choir, do martial arts or even morris dancing, we’d love to share a stage with you” he said, suggesting interested parties email the company at cherwelltheatreco@gmail.com.

‘Myth’ continues CTC’s tradition of bringing young people together will professional actors and theatre creatives.

“It’s incredibly exciting to have Adrian Banks, Liam Nooney and Jess Lloyd-Jones joining us for the production – all actors originally from Banbury, now with varied and impressive professional credits” said Mr Jackson-Pate.

Generous support has also been provided by Cherwell District Council and the Victoria Wood Foundation to ensure over thirty young people with an interest in theatre can take part free of charge.

‘Myth’ performances will take place at from 20-26 August in Banbury Market place, at Bretch Hill Summer Fest, Longford Park, Bodicote, Heyford Park, Upper Heyford and OYAP Trust in Bicester. A preview performance will also be presented to the early years groups at the Sunshine Centre, Banbury.

The Lost Words for every Primary, Infant and Special School in Oxfordshire

A team of three Oxfordshire residents (Rowena Rouse, Angela Wilson and Andy Egan) have come together to launch a crowdfunding campaign on 14th February to raise enough funds to provide a copy of The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris to every primary, infant and special school in Oxfordshire. Our target is to raise £4,000 in 28 days.

As you probably know this award winning book (Children’s Book of the Year 2018) was inspired by the removal of words like acorn, bluebell, conker, kingfisher and otter from the Oxford Junior Dictionary. The Lost Words book combines a series of acrostic spells related to each lost word – intended to be read aloud – with beautiful accompanying illustrations.

We would be very grateful if you could help to promote the crowdfunder with your supporters and through social media. Our Faceboook page and Twitter account are live.

As part of the offer to schools we will also be providing a range of support materials and information to help teachers bring the book to life with their pupils and provide them with more opportunities to feel a close connection to the natural world. This will include a list of local organisations that provide environmental learning opportunities for schools.If this might be relevant for you then please contact us.
