Have you see The Nornen?

The shipwreck at Berrow?

Have you heard the stories?

Wednesday 3rd March 1897. A date ingrained in the memory of Berrow Beach. A date that gave Somerset a monument to treasure. As a howling south westerly gale swept up the Bristol Channel, the Norwegian sailing vessel The Nornen got caught in the lee of the Lundy Roads. The anchor dragged. The sails tore. The cruel winds blew the crew between two treacherous coastlines. When 10 men and a dog are caught in the eye of the storm, can a community save the day? The story of The Nornen is one of community spirit, true courage, and battling the waves.
Featuring integrated British Sign Language, visual storytelling and live music, All Hands! is an original theatre production for the whole community. Cast: Kieran Buckeridge, Stephen Collins, Matty Gurney, Lucy Tuck, Chioma Uma and our wonderful community performers.

General Information This is an outdoor production at Marine Cove, so please come dressed for the weather. Seating is unreserved – bring a picnic blanket and set up camp with the family right in front of the stage, or have a sit down on one of the temporary seats further back. Seats will be on a fist-come first-served basis, but please notify the Box Office if you have any access requirements.
