Daventry Museum will again be playing host, albeit virtually this time, to the interactive theatre company Don’t Go Into The Cellar. This summer the theatre company will be recording and sharing their Victorian Fairy Tales performance exclusively with our virtual visitors! The exact date is to be confirmed, but virtual visitors will be able to view it via this website and the Town Council’s YouTube channel.
Audiences young, and not so young, have enjoyed past performances immensely; so when April’s fully booked ‘Victorian Fairy Tales’ had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the museum’s closure we got our heads together to create this exciting opportunity to view the performance online! Contact the museum by email to be added to the invitation list by 28th July 2020 and the performance ‘go-live’ date will then be shared to those on the list.
On the run up to the performance at the end of July, there will be teasers on our Facebook page, Twitter feed and Instagram account, giving virtual visitors clues to the tales being told by kindly Mother Goose.
There will also be a drawing competition and prizes for the best Fairy Tale Scene 2020 poster, Daventry Museum want to see a scene from a well-loved fairy tale given a modern twist, how would the characters look today, what would they be wearing? What they be doing and saying differently in their story? Let your imagination run wild! The competition will be spilt into two age categories and will be open to all those 12 and under. Winner’s will be announced at the beginning of August and entries will be shared via social media and on our website. In order to enter, send photographs of drawing/s to firstname.lastname@example.org (via an adult’s email address only please) along with the child’s name and age, by the closing date 28 July 2020.
