town squared

Town Squared is Barrel Organ’s brand-new civic participation project. Each year, we will work with the population of a different small- to medium-sized town in England to find new, exciting ways of making theatre and building community. After a series of weekly open-access workshops with brilliant artists and theatre-makers, those involved will work together to write, direct, design and perform in their own short plays, to be presented in the town centre for anyone who wants to join in the fun. We’re beyond excited to collaborate with communities to theatricalise the stories they want to tell.


This year’s Town Squared project is taking place in Leighton-Linslade, in Central Bedfordshire. If you’re interested in taking part, click here.


If you live or work in a town which you feel would benefit from this project, please drop Dan a line on dan@barrelorgantheatre.co.uk.
