Streets Alive! Eastern Angles

Streets Alive! Eastern Angles

Eastern Angles Streets Alive!

Saturday 16th July 11am - 12pm

Music and street theatre parade through Framlingham Town Centre from the Pageant Field at 10.30am all the way down to Market Hill.

Eastern Angles take free theatre to the streets of Suffolk this Summer!

Since 1982 Eastern Angles have been known as the touring theatre company for the East of England, always pushing the boundaries of the region's cultural offering – this July they'll be breaking out of the venue mould and performing on the streets of Suffolk with their new project Streets Alive!

Streets Alive aims to capture the magic of Suffolk stories and bring them to life on local high streets. Stilt walking, puppetry and music combine in outdoor performances that will parade through the streets of Suffolk market towns and school playgrounds.

Speaking about the project, Eastern Angles' Artistic Director Ivan Cutting said: "This is about getting shoppers back into the town centre and generally making the High Street an attractive and exciting place to be, especially where pedestrianisation makes it safe and natural to watch the world go by."

The project will bring two historical figures back to Suffolk – local heroine Margaret Catchpole, who "borrowed" a horse for the ride of her life and a ride through history, and 13th century North African Musician, The Ipswich Man, whose bones were found in a recent excavation of the town's Greyfriars hospital cemetery.

This project has been made possible thanks to funding from the Suffolk Covid Continuity Fund and the Ipswich Business Growth & Innovation Fund.
