What's On...



This project is aimed at 8 -15 year olds with a love of theatre. Starting with only a title "The Watchful Wizard's Warning" participants will create a performance in just five days by devising the story, directing the characters, and generating a lot of fun along the way. This is a piece of open-air theatre (the performance will occur outside), so students will even be involved in deciding the location of the performance within the Great Linford Manor Park grounds. 

Due to the open-air nature participants are requested to bring appropriate clothing for the weather and sun protection as well as a packed lunch and plenty of water. If the weather should become extremely wet or hot we have access to the Milton Keynes Arts Centre. £95 (+ ticket fee) for five days 9.30am (registration) - 4pm (It is encouraged that all participants come all five days).

The public performance will take place at 5.30pm on 27th August within the grounds of Great Linford Manor Park. The performance is free but donations are welcome. Audience are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy quietly while they watch the performance.
