Momentous and epic are two words that spring to mind.’ – Sadie Dixon-Spain, Playwright and Artistic Director of The Walking Theatre Company shares her experience in delving into past of the Caledonian Canal, and writing this fantastic production.

Wiz Around Watchtree!

From Watchtree Nature Reserve: “Just a quick one to say a huge thank you to The Walking Theatre Company, our volunteers and all of the wonderful visitors who came to follow the yellow brick road! An awesome evening and some pennies in the charity pot. The icing on the cake was the rain started just as I locked the gates.”

BIG THANKS to Watchtree Nature Reserve in Cumbria for inviting TWTC to perform ‘WIZ AROUND OZ’ at their beautiful venue on the 6th of August. What a brilliant time we had – such a stunning location, and a super audience! Hope to see you all again soon!
