Sharing Our Stories – in development
This pilot project involves mainly Eastern Europeans working in local hotels and restaurants in Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, who have been telling a group of Wonderful Beast volunteers their stories in informal gatherings over food and wine. We have recorded some amazing tales and had tremendous fun. The aim is two-fold, to extend a welcoming hand to the foreign workers into our community, and to explore ways of co-creating a new piece of theatre inspired by their personal stories and fairy tales.
A very positive outcome of these meetings is that a volunteer from Wonderful Beast has offered to give free weekly English lessons to hotel staff keen to improve their language skills. This is a fruitful partnership that has been developed with the hotels training and management team.
Thanks to Thorpeness and Aldeburgh Hotels for their tremendous support and hospitality
