An interactive creative writing workshop, exploring the sights and sounds of the Chilterns AONB, including our memories and stories about the past, present and future and to enhance the community’s contribution to the play, Sour Cherry Soup, touring in June 2023 as part of Chilterns Drama from the Chalk, Cherries and Chairs project.

We are inviting people across the Chilterns to share their stories and thoughts about the past, present and future of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty through this workshop, which will help inform the final play script. Playwright Sara Clifford will take all of the ideas, and her own, and transform the material into a one -woman show to be performed at various venues across the Chilterns next summer.

This workshop is part of Chalk, Cherries & Chairs – an ambitious five-year scheme which aims to connect local people to the wildlife and cultural heritage of the Central Chilterns. The scheme operates under three themes – wildlife, heritage and people – but the projects which fall under these three themes are all designed with the Chilterns landscape in mind. ‘Sour Cherry Soup’ forms the basis of Chalk, Cherries and Chairs’ Chilterns Drama festival, which will be taking place in Summer 2023.
