Roundabout Basingstoke

Roundabout Basingstoke

Local organisations joined forces with professional soloists to perform a specially commissioned piece by Martin Read and Philip Sealey. The promenade performance took place in the piazza outside The Anvil front doors, in the foyers, and around the auditorium.

On a journey around the ring road, accompanied by a lyrical and sarcastic prologue, Polly encounters historical and fictional characters with local connections who either help or hinder her journey.

Basingatoke Choral Society, Basingstoke Concert Band, Basingstoke Silver Band, Innovations Jazz Orchestra and the Tadley Band all participated in the performance.
