Town Crier Workshop


Event Details

Free workshop 6pm til 8pm

Have you seen The Nornen?

The shipwreck at Berrow?

Have you heard the stories?

The Nornen Project is producing “All Hands!”, a new show about… well, The Nornen, the shipwreck off Berrow Beach. Alongside the show, we’re running a whole host of Nornen-inspired workshops and this is set to be a loud one!

Daniel Hawthorne leads a riotous session on how to spread the news in this most wonderful and traditional of ways. We’ll romp through some vocal techniques and have a go at making announcements in the style of the Town Crier. One of Burnham’s past Town Criers could be heard at sea: could you give him a run for his money? Come and give it a go!

No experience necessary, just a reasonable set of lungs.

Thanks to our funders, we are able to offer support with transport, British Sign Language Interpreters, food and more for our activities. Please contact [email protected] to discuss anything that you need to be able to take part.

Funders: National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, Somerset Community Foundation, Hinkley Point C Community Fund, Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council.
