Fiona Matthews runs Theatre Orchard, an arts development organisation that was set up in 2007 to develop a professional arts infrastructure for North Somerset, an area of low cultural engagement.  The organisation creates and curates inspiring professional live arts experiences in the heart of communities – from empty shops to residential homes to piers to beaches –  alongside an ongoing engagement programme that has been recognised for its impact on health and well-being.

Come and join Fiona as she gives a snapshot of Theatre Orchard’s work and shares how the company has moved from the challenging realms of being pretty much the lone cultural voice in North Somerset, to today where Theatre Orchard is the region’s first National Portfolio Organisation.  There are still challenges of course, but everything’s relative!
