The project was inspired by 17th-century coal merchant Thomas Britton, who lived in the area. In 1678 he converted the loft over his coal shed into a concert venue. George Frideric Handel is said to have played at some of the shows.

The Small Coal Man’s Tiny Travelling Theatre will be towed around the festival by a Volkswagen camper van and people will be invited inside to become part of the performance alongside actors and musicians.

This is a compelling example of a convivial, intimate event. For more, read our Conviviality Culture macrotrend report.
