The Somerset Charabanc: Egg Day
Wassail, Reveal Productions and Somerset Wildlife Trust
An immersive outdoor theatrical experience traversing Westhay Moor National Nature Reserve
After a great deal of badgering, Pete has convinced Somerset Wildlife Trust to let him & Ivan run a tour of Westhay Moor in The Somerset Charabanc. What tales will Pete tell today? What stories, buried in the bog, will he unearth? And will Ivan stick to the path?
Set and performed on a 1920’s miller’s cart pulled by two Suffolk Punch horses, audiences and performers were brought together in an intimate, spellbinding adventure.
Starting and finishing at Westhay Moor Car Park, the show travelled through the epicentre of Somerset Wildlife Trust’s prize Nature Reserve.
