Georgie the Knight and the Armour too Bright

A pop up performance inspired by our costume making heritage.

Georgie is on a quest to find out what it means to be a knight (and how to really look the part). 

Georgie the Knight was first performed in Summer 2021, created and directed by Nicky Cox and performed by Grace Wylde as Georgie and Ollie Lynes in the other roles. Commissioned for Threads, a programme of events celebrating the history of costume making in Stratford-upon-Avon.
