Touching The Tide

We are delighted to have been part of Touching the Tide – a Landscape Partnership Scheme funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Touching the Tide was a 3-year venture, now drawing to a close, which celebrated and explored the landscape of the Suffolk Coast through a series of diverse and exciting events and projects. We provided bespoke storytelling at several of their events last year, ranging from an archaelogical dig at Dunwich in July to a ‘Spooky Day’ at Landguard Fort, Felixstowe in October. All the stories were themed around and/or inspired by the coast. We featured old favourites alongside new tales that we wrote specifically for each location including The Not So Sweet Smell of Defeatbased on the legends of smugglers around Dunwich; The Magic Scallop Shell, a fairytale fantasy inspired by Maggie Hambling’s sculpture at Aldeburgh and The Sea of Hands, a ghost story that might make you think twice about strolling along Sizewell beach after dark! 

“Harvey and Louise worked with us to bring some of our key events to life with costume and storytelling. Their friendly performances appealed to adults and children alike, and added dramatic sparkle to our offer. Behind the scenes they’re also professional, flexible, and reliable, which makes them very easy to work with.”
