Wasing Festival of Theatre
























We are very excited to be playing host to Welsh writing theatre company Dirty Protest for three days in July filled with theatre, food and drinks at our extraordinary Woodland venue.

On her way to the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Laura Dalgleish will be performing Sian Owen’s critically acclaimed How To Be Brave described as ‘a celebration of womanhood, of courage and of Newport’ by Critically Speaking. It’s a love letter to Newport, but also an exploration of the experiences of a mother in a fast-changing and confusing world…

When Katie was little, she was brave: climbing trees and riding bikes too fast. Now Katie’s a mum, she must be brave in a new way.  Determined her daughter will keep the fierce magic she arrived into the world with, Katie sets off on a mission around Newport with the help of a stolen BMX, a policewoman with bad hair, and a pigeon in a bag.

























Wasing Woodland is an incredibly unique venue, the perfect space to enjoy an evening of theatre. We will be providing a delicious spatchcooked estate venison and drinks will be provided by Gusto Organic.


























How To Be Brave is performed by Laura Dalgleish whose previous credits include Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest at Storyhouse Theatre in Chester as well as TV appearances on BBC 1’s Eastenders and Call The Midwife. Catherine Paskell directs this wonderful piece, whose previous successes include Sugar Baby which was recently added to the British Council Showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has toured internationally.

Performances are on Thursday 4th, Friday 5th (sold out) and Thursday 11th July 2019.
