  We’ve been celebrating Harvest and Michaelmas this week. Bringing together all the achievements of the community we enjoyed a shared lunch of four different soups cooked by the houses and fresh bread from our Bakery served by the Cafe team.

Last month we were involved in the brilliant IF:Milton Keynes International Festival! We collaborated with people of various abilities on an improvisation around the theme of ‘Home’ entitled Back-to-Back. Our performers were given ‘stage’ directions and a camera ran across a track to record the various movements. It was great to be a part of a festival that celebrates Milton Keynes’ creativity.

Last month we took part in a wonderful partnership with the GIV project joining our theatre groups with local schools. GIV help local young people to build confidence, self-esteem and skills through supported volunteering so we got together to put on a show called ‘A Balloon For Granddad’ which was held in our Chrysalis Theatre. Everyone enjoyed our collaboration with inspiring young people and overall it was a great success! Thanks to Julia and everyone involved in the planning and preparation of the activity.

What an afternoon that was! We’re still buzzing from our community performance of Joseph. One of the unique things about us is that we work hard to ‘build community’ by getting people involved in projects that are not much to do with their work but create a social and cultural activity where we all have a part to play. These projects bring out the best in our creativity and when we get together for a big performance in our Chrysalis Theatre we really feel a sense of community and achievement. Our resident photographer Alex captured these moments, which we will …
