WHATS ON

Wonderful Beast is currently in a planning, fund raising and research and development period after a very busy year so do take a look at our news page to get a picture of our work this year.

 

We are particularly interested in woodwoses (both male and female) and wyverns (two legged dragons), creatures of the forest which feature in Thea Smiley’s new play that is in development after a highly successful reading in the High Tide Festival. With Smiley’s imaginative twists and turns we are transported back and forth in time through a shapeshifting world of myth and reality. So, if you have any interesting information as to where these ancient beings can be found, and we know many East Anglian churches have carvings of them (e g Saxmundham, Cratfield, Peasenhall, Woolpit to name but a few) do contact Wonderful Beast.
