Unexpected Places say: “We have received funding from Southampton City Council, Culture Southampton and Arts Council England to run several free workshops with the local community that will culminate in the creation of a new performance called Our Neck of the Woods.

“Our Neck of the Woods is a performance all about you, our community and our city. We would like to speak to as many people as possible to build a picture of the people that make Southampton the place it is today. Through sharing your memories and stories in our drama based workshops we will create a new performance all about people, relationships, place and belonging.”
