Cherwell Theatre Company present artistic work created by young people in their second
‘Tell Your Story Festival’ for Banbury.
Our Inaugural 'Tell Your Story Festival' is a series of creative workshops and events taking place in community settings in Banbury, bringing Young People and Community Groups together with professional artists to present their story in their own words through visual and creative storytelling.
From April through to July we will be running workshops to new and existing youth groups, schools and community partners, culminating in a 2 day event, on 1st and 2nd July 2023, in Banbury Town Centre to celebrate and platform their creative work through drama, art, music and more!

During the Easter Holidays, CTC are running a FREE skills workshop week for ages 11-19 years (and up to 25 for those with additional needs). Hosted by our Artistic Director Tristan Jackson-Pate, and visiting artists, you can try range of skills from stand up comedy to clowning and slapstick, poetry, music, playwriting and composing (subject to availability).
These FREE creative skills workshops are presented as part of our second, biennial 'Tell Your Story Festival' for the Banbury Community.
