towns alive!

a three-day celebration of the place where we live.

During summer 2021, three towns across the south-east of England staged a local extravaganza, bringing together communities to enjoy a programme of performance, workshops and events that celebrate neighbourhoods, togetherness and all there is to be proud of in the places we call home.

house provided the infrastructure for each venue to present a few days of activity away from the bricks and mortar of their buildings. A beautiful traditional tent-pole marquee will spring up in the heart of each community to host two or three days performances and workshops, gigs, barn dances, comedy and much more.

The journey started at Farnham Maltings from 21 July; progressed to King’s Lynn from 5 August, and concluded with ‘Four Days at Staunton Country Park’ curated by The Spring in Havant from 19 August.
