Frankwell’s Helter Skelter Studios have been working with Thingumajig Theatre and Shrewsbury Morris on a project called Septimus the Giant. The project has been funded by the Arts Council and will deliver two films and a series of performances featuring Septimus and the Shrewsbury Morris celebrating the story of the Shrewsbury Cobbler.
The giant has been built under the expert tutelage of Thingumajig Theatre in Leighton Village Hall, enthusiastically assisted by members of the public who have discovered skills they never knew they had – to be fair, most people have never created a giant clog!
The workshops have been filmed and photographed by Helter Skelter Studios and the upcoming performance on Sunday 29 September in the Square, Shrewsbury will be filmed too. Come and join in the fun at 11am – 2pm Septimus the Giant, clog dancing, music and Morris dancers – it will be awesome!
