Malcolm will be performing 3 drama workshops at this year’s Artsfest, a free annual festival of arts held in various venues in the heart of the City of Birmingham.

The workshops are based on our new theatre-in-education programme By the River Bank which explores the world created in Wind in the Willows, the enduringly popular children’s tale of Mole, Rattie, Toad and Badger by Kenneth Grahame. This charming new programme builds on the company’s extensive experience of creating storytelling programmes inspired by classic stories such as Into the Garden and links in with The REP’s forthcoming Christmas production of The Wind in the Willows.

Each workshop will last 30 minutes and will all be performed on Saturday 08th September. Further details of the venues and times can be found below. All ages welcome.

Performance 1
Venue: Waterstones, New Street
Time: 11.00 – 11.30

Performance 2
Venue: The Council House – HMS Daring Room
Time: 13.00 – 13.30

Performance 3
Venue: Conservatoire, Arena Foyer
Time: 15.00 – 15.30

A 90 minute programme is currently being developed for years 1 & 2 and will tour schools between October-December. Details on how to book the schools tour can be found here.

By the River Bank will immerse children in a rich fictional world and involve them in the various adventures and mishaps and negotiating the friendships of the story’s main characters.
