A Strange New Space – Rural Arts Event

Did you know that Astronauts get taller in space? That our solar system is around 4.6 billion years old?
Or that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on all of the beaches on Earth?
Amira knows all of these things. She is completely obsessed with space and dreams of becoming an
Astronaut. But one night, the bangs, whooshes and fizzes of her imagination explode right out of her
dreams, becoming a deafening reality. In the darkness, Amira must leave her hometown to go on an
adventure, to find a safe space. Hearing the words ‘space’ and ‘adventure’, Amira quickly packs her
bag for the intergalactic trip she’s been waiting for…
A completely original one woman show without words, A Strange New Space melds physical theatre
with stunning puppetry and original music. We travel on an imagined voyage into space, paralleled with
Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee across continents, forming an unforgettable introduction to theatre
for audiences of four years and older.
“Tessa Bide understands children in a way that can’t be taught.” Children’s Theatre Reviews
“An emotional rollercoaster…sparking curiosity and genuine wonder.” Curious Mum
“There is something magical about this solo production. Tessa Bide’s performance…captivates
the audience from the start.” Female Arts ★★★★

This beautiful and exciting production tells the story of a life changing adventure. Space obsessed Amira leaves home in search of a safe new space and embarks on an intergalactic voyage, matching her real-life journey as a refugee. 

In this non-verbal one-woman show, Tessa Bide uses physical theatre, puppetry and music as an international language, making it enjoyable for children of all nationalities, along with those with additional needs. 

Age guidance 4 to 10 years and their families

“This is a very lovely show not just about the journey and adventures of a refugee child but about the brilliance of the imagination.” Weston Super Mum

“Lovely audience interaction and excellent comic timing…It’s impossible not to believe in and warm to Bide as a performer – she is winning, charismatic and versatile.” Children’s Theatre Reviews

Tidy Up Day


Very many thanks to the 24+ people who turned up this morning to help with the Park Action Day. With teams inside the hall, on the recreation ground & in the play area a big impression was made all round with litter picked, shrubs pruned, weeds & brambles cleared, windows cleaned & furniture steam cleaned to mention just a few of the jobs done! We look forward to even more people coming to help next time on 24th June when we need to get the site looking it’s best ready for the fete.
