Storyboat 700+1 is an exciting, new heritage project celebrating the 700 year anniversary of St Peter’s Church in Portishead and supported by Theatre Orchard’s Engagement programme. Originally planned to take place to mark the anniversary in June 2020 and postponed due to Covid-19, the initiative is setting sail again and will welcome people on board for a heart-felt celebration on Sunday 20 June 2021 – watch this space for more details!
In the meantime, we are working safely below deck to gather stories from the local community, including schools and Church groups. Written and drawn on specially designed cardboard boat templates, the stories will create a flotilla sculpture of hundreds of boats to be displayed within St Peter’s Church to celebrate the 700 year history of this extraordinary place and its people.
Storyboat 700+1 is is funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Theatre Orchard
