From February 2016 onwards we worked with our partners Knowle West Media Centre, Up Our Street and Ambition Lawrence Weston to produce Bristol’s own version of The Record, by award winning New York Theatre company 600 HIGHWAYMEN. Over 200 local citizens took part in auditions in September 2016 that were open to everyone. In January intensive one-to-one rehearsals began with 600 HIGHWAYMEN.
A cast of 45 incredible Bristolians from 8 to 75 years old, came together for the very first time on the opening night on stage at Bristol Old Vic.
