Glimmer Theatre is coming to a shop near you!
Come along to Shop Front Stories... A chance to hear, see and share your stories on your highstreet.
Inspired by the stories and beautiful images we received during the Quarantine Quilt project you now have the chance to see the quilt and add your own stories. Come to the shop and receive either a paper or fabric patch to add your story to the quilt and see the installation grow. Each week Glimmer Theatre will use what you bring us to create a short show with puppetry and music that can be seen on weekends as well as streamed online!
Bring your drawings and your words and help us build a magical story shop where you can see your ideas brought to life!
We'll be working in the shop during the week so if you've ever wanted to know how theatre is made now is your chance! Everyone is welcome to look through the glass and see us at work. If you're an artist and would like to use the windows for your work, get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
As we received each patch for the Quarantine Quilt we were struck by how similar peoples' experiences had been, it showed us that whatever you went through during lockdown you weren't alone. Shop Front Stories is a chance for us to draw everyone's stories together, it's a place where we can help each other understand what we've all experienced in pictures, stories, music and puppets. Everyone has a story, now is your chance to tell yours.
