About this Event

Bill's Attic is Moving House

Celebration and Fundraising Evening

Bill Mitchell, internationally recognised Artistic Director of WildWorks and Kneehigh, created shows that dazzled: 100:The Day the World Changed; The Very Old Man with Enormous Wings; Tristan and Yseult; Wolf’s Child; The Passion.

Bill’s projects were inspired by his Attic, a private creation space which housed an extraordinary lifetime’s collection of artefacts: egg shells, toys, spoons, snow globes, archaeology…the flotsam and jetsam of life all arranged with idiosyncratic and exquisite care in the attic of his house.

Bill died 2 years ago and left the attic collection as a gift for the artist in everyone. It has been our job at FEAST and WildWorks to see how we can translate that idea into reality.

So….the plan is that Bill’s Attic will move to Krowji, Redruth, to provide inspiration for a fresh generation of creators, makers, thinkers, radicals.

We are not seeking public funding to do this but do need the help of the great Cornish family – friends, fans, lovers of amazing spectacles in wet quarries - to make this happen. We need to raise some money, secure some pledges of practical help when it comes to the removals, and hear your ideas for the new Bill’s Attic.

Our fundraising evening is made possible by the amazing generosity of many people including our hosts The Redruth Drapery, the donors of our auction items and our performers.
