Eynsham Mysteries 24 Oct 2010 Reports from a community arts festival of drama, story telling, dance, music and more, performed on 24-27 November 2010

This community arts festival of drama, story telling, dance, music and more, was performed on 24-27 November 2010 and inspired by the success of the previous Eynsham Mysteries in 2000 and 2006 - each directed and created by husband and wife team Claire and Nick Page.

We are very grateful to our funders for supporting The Eynsham Mysteries. With much of the budget secured by August 2010, we were able to plan and implement a very ambitious project involving 100 performers on stage, and a further 100 members of the community involved in backstage support including set design, costumes and props, etc.

“The Eynsham Mysteries was a powerful example of active citizens giving time, energies and skills to make things happen. The event has brought people together, created new friendships and links between different organisations. It has built both individual confidences and a collective belief that we live in a strong, imaginative and collaborative community with a wide range of talent.”
