The Walk: presented in association with Good Chance Theatre

The Walk is an international project aimed at highlighting the plight of the estimated 33 million children who are currently displaced worldwide. 

The Everyman Theatre's Education and Community team is supporting the project which will focus on a giant puppet named Amal, created by Handspring Puppet Company (who created the War Horse), as it trek's 8,000 kilometres from the Turkish/Syrian border, culminating in a festival in Manchester in November.

As part of The Walk the Everman Theatre is organising supporting events in Gloucestershire involving hundreds of children and young people throughout the county. As part of the event the team has created...

The next phase of the project will feature a giant sculpture currently being created by Natasha Houseago at Nature in Art in Twigworth. The sculpture will feature peg dolls, created by local schools and community groups, to represent refugee children throughout the world.

The sculpture, titled Displaced Child, will be moved to Gloucester Cathedral for public view, from the 8th of October. Following the residency at Gloucester Cathedral the sculpture will tour various venues throughout the county. To book the sculpture into your venue or to be part of the project by decorating pegs please email



Theatre has great power to be transformational, not only for individuals but also for communities. It can help to develop self-worth, confidence and communication skills and bring people together. The Everyman Theatre offers a wide range of participation opportunities both within the theatre and out in community settings. Our team of experienced practitioners work creatively with groups across Gloucestershire and with a wide range of artforms. We run workshops and projects specifically created to support community groups which can last from an hour to a series of weeks.
