Storyboat 700+


10-19 September

St Peter's Church


As part of Heritage Open Days 2021 and through the Autumn

Visitors to St Peter’s Church in Portishead can enjoy a community heritage project celebrating the 700th anniversary of the church and the local area. Run in partnership between Theatre Orchard and St Peter’s Church and supported by funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Storyboat 700+ showcases the community and the town’s rich history through a collaborative campaign of creative activity being displayed at the Church until the Autumn.

An aerial, flotilla sculpture of 700+ cardboard boats depicting stories and pictures gathered from the community is suspended in the nave of the Church and stunning willow sculptures by artist Helen Wheelock pay homage to the town. Take a visit and find out more about the project and this historic Church nestled in the most beautiful of settings and grounds.
