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 to get your imaginations running wild.

Want to trace your family tree? Perhaps you’re curious about an old building or a long-forgotten story? Discover the tools you might need to investigate the past with local historian and researcher Jacqui Strong. You’ll find out how we’ve gathered historical information for our show, and how to begin unpicking the past through a range of sources.

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.
