Progress with Enchanted Walk
Significant progress is being made with our Enchanted Walk, a series of fairytale-themed displays inside a series of mock shopfronts.
Designs for the displays have been produced for us by theatre set and costume designer Rhyannon Richardson (www.rhyannon.co.uk). The designs are Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty. The Little Red Riding Hood designs can be seen to the right. (All the designs can be viewed in a special photo gallery).
Two of the sets (Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks) have now been built. They were created by a team of volunteers - Rhyannon Richardson, Robert Miles and Alan Bower - using workshops at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts (ALRA), a Drama and Acting School based in London (www.alra.co.uk). A big thank you to Rhyannon, Robert and Alan for their work throughout August, and to ALRA for use of the workshops and equipment. View a photo gallery of the sets under construction here.
The buildings in which these sets will be housed are now under construction and good progress is being made. View a photo gallery of the construction here.
