Project NameFolktales for Hampton
Who’s involvedEastern Angles Theatre Company, Lamphouse Theatre Company

Project summed up in one sentenceCreating Hampton’s very own folklore through a range of workshops and performances spanning storytelling to monster building to digital art.

How did we choose this project?All of our projects have been chosen by members of the community. We think the best way to offer great art and creativity is if you get to decide what we do with you! A panel of local residents from Hampton community were given a menu of projects to discuss and choose from. Each project was very different, and it was very interesting to listen to the discussions about what residents of Hampton would like to see. Everyone was very passionate about trying to create an exciting, magical history for Hampton, as it is such a new part of the city with lots of young families. Eastern Angles seemed like the perfect fit!

How can you get involved?There will something for everyone: story circles for infants, puppetry/storyboard making for Primary students, theatre and writing for Secondary students, walks and discussions for adults and reminiscence sessions for older residents. If you would like to register your interest in the workshops before we release the full programme, please email Charley at or call 01733 864532.
