'Chipp Shop' comes to Worcester

Published Thursday, 24th March 2016

A new drama and storytelling project group aimed at members of the public in receipt of social care has started in Worcester.

The project is called Chipp Shop and is led by theatre writer and storyteller, Caroline Jester. Each week, attendees will use hidden treasures and objects from the Museum of Royal Worcester's collection to create stories.

Chipp Shop is an award winning project and has already had great success in Kidderminster, Evesham and Bromsgrove and we are delighted that it is now coming to Worcester.

The event is held weekly at 10.30am-12.30pm at the Museum of Royal Worcester. The first session was held on Friday 11 March and the course will run until Friday 20 May (excluding Good Friday on 25 March).

The cost of each session is £6, including tea, coffee and cake.

Neil Anderson, Head of Community and Environment at Worcestershire County Council said: "We are committed to providing cultural opportunities for everyone in Worcestershire. These sessions will allow us to showcase a range of activities for those who are in receipt of social care budgets."
