Wassail and The Brewhouse present

Whispering Willows

We're thrilled to be part of Here and Now a national and local celebration of culture within communities spread across cities, towns and the countryside.


Our new show Whispering Willows will be a non-verbal piece of theatre using music and puppetry, created in collaboration with young people, told through the eyes of a willow farming family, against the backdrop of World War II in Somerset.


What is our relationship with nature, and how does that influence how we live our lives? What happens when forces outside of our control destroy that?

Whispering Willows will be touring into primary schools across Somerset in early 2021.
