WOODLAND THEATRE PRESENTS
The aim of this project is to create a multi-functional outdoor space that can accommodate a wide array of activities, including dance, theater, and other artistic practices. The structure has to be semi-open, allowing for unimpeded views of the surrounding natural landscape while simultaneously offering shelter to the audience. The proposed space, situated within a tranquil woodland environment, will cater to individuals of all ages and abilities, ensuring universal accessibility. Central to the design will be a canopy and amphitheater that offer unobstructed views of the breathtaking scenery of Harwes Farm. The use of natural materials, particularly timber, is paramount to ensure that the project remains true to its ethos of keeping nature at the forefront of the design. It is worth noting that this project will be established under the auspices of a Community Interest Company (CIC) which works and acts like a company but is a charity. Gill Taylor is a Farmer and Youth Worker using her farm for wide-array of activities such as night-walks through the woodland, camping, pop up cinema, allotment space and Forest School. With a concept built around everyone’s wellbeing and confidence, Gill's ambition is to connect people back to nature across her 57 acres, 36 of which are woodland. She is missing an outdoor theatre space for performances overlooking the scenery.
