Litfest has initiated several projects over the years, including The Castle Park Stories and The Slave Trade Memorial Project to name but two. The Sea Swallow commission was a part of the Mythic Coastline project; Litfest commissioned Gareth Thompson to write a narrative that blended local features and legends, with illustrations by Hannah Magee. These illustrations have been realised in public artworks to be seen on the coast at Cleveleys, including The Sea Swallow Sculpture, the Shipwreck Memorial, the Giant Ogre’s Paddle, the Stone Ogre and Mary’s Shell.
For our 40th festival Litfest has commissioned a very special adaptation of this much loved story. In partnership with friends of the festival Ludus Dance, we present a very special production combining pre-recorded and live storytelling, soundscape, dance, music and virtual reality technology. Experience the story of The Sea Swallow as never before in this unique promenade-style performance. The event will run from 3pm with groups leaving at 15 minute intervals.
