Journey across the meadows beside the Stour as we follow two young people setting out on a quest to discover how 'our river runs through us'

About this event

Secrets of the Stour is an original performance which reflects a sense of place intertwined with personal and mythical stories which shine a light on how crucial our river ecology is for us.

Set in the watermeadows and along the banks of the River Stour in a hidden part of Wimborne, 'Secrets of the Stour' is the second part of Wimborne Community Theatre's 'Our Rivers Run Through Us' project. This innovative performance featuring specially written music and song, giant puppets and interactive scenes, has been developed by members of WCT, written and directed by Tony Horitz, in collaboration with artistic director Joe Hancock, Millstream artistic director Tam Gilbert, musician and composer Karen Wimhurst and sound artist Adrian Newton.

Gates open at 7.15pm, performance starts at 7.30pm prompt.
