Latest News and Projects

To prepare for our next project about the Wimborne rivers, WCT members have been individually reflecting on the theme using a wide variety of media. See what we've come up with so far...

To celebrate World Rivers Day (September 27) read people's memories of walking near the Wimborne rivers. Or take a sound walk to hear Adrian Newton's Sound Fishing.

Due to the recent changes to government advice, this event has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule it in the future. Watch this space.

WCT took part in a Community Theatre and Heritage seminar, organised by acta community theatre, to talk about WCT’s process for deciding which stories to choose in developing community plays.

We would like to hear your River Stories and Memories to help create a community theatre production in 2021.

Read and listen to Group Poems in a Soundscape by members of WCT, written during the Covid lockdown as a way of keeping in touch with each other and as a way of recording our feelings and thoughts during this time.
