The Great Performing Rope - a Free Film, Cake and Conversation, 18 February at 4.30 pm, The Maltings, Berwick

Last October, the Great Performing Rope occupied the streets of Berwick creating a 900 metre long route through the town centre carrying the personal stories, memories and hopes of the people of Berwick and its visitors.

Here's an opportunity to see a film screening documenting the event, hear the stories of some of the people who took part and helped to make it happen.

You'll hear Katie Doherty’s popular new sea shanty for Berwick “All hands to the Rope”.

It's at The Maltings Theatre & Cinema, Eastern Lane, Berwick-upon-Tweed, TD15 1AJ at 4.30 pm on 18 February. Map.

They’ll be serving tea and cake afterwards and hope you'll stay on for an informal discussion to explore what could happen next to the stories on the rope.

They have an idea for another project for Berwick-upon-Tweed and would love to hear your thoughts, contributions and ideas.

The film features work by artists Carl Von Weiler, Julia Barton, Kate Doherty and Dan Fox as well as local school children; several community and youth groups; and local musicians Electric Penelope, Sammy Read and the Golden Square Singers, who all helped to bring the Great Performing Rope to life!

The Great Performing Rope was co-produced by November Club and Culture Creative in association with artist Carl von Weiler and was presented as part of Berwick 900.

The event is free. Book now !
