Surrey Community Touring

Extraordinary theatre in unexpected spaces 

Farnham Maltings and Arts Partnership Surrey have joined together to create a new opportunity for Surrey residents to enjoy theatrical experiences on their doorstep. Recognising that not everyone finds it easy to make the trip to a theatre, they have developed a new scheme to take professional theatre to new and unexpected spaces such as an art gallery, village pub or shopping and leisure centres.

Surrey Community Touring 2019 includes two theatre pieces suitable for children and adults to enjoy together:

  • Once Upon a Pillowfight - a wonderfully inventive mix of theatre, acrobatics and storytelling from leading contemporary company.
  • Upswing and The Bird Show - a fun, clowning piece from up-and-coming company The Last Baguette. 

The third piece is Bubble Schmeisis from Nick Cassenbaum. This adult show is a charming and infectiously funny account of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting ‘schmeised’ (washed) by old men. It forms part of Mole Valley’s Arts Alive festival which runs throughout October.
