First performed on March 25th 2006, this community project was the result of a collaboration between myself, filmmaker Nigel Bird and St. Andrew's Church in Eastern Green.
With the involvement of the local community; both the regular church members along with the parents and children of the nearby St. Andrew's Infants School, we set out to create a unique history of Eastern Green, mixing both traditional play techniques, and modern audio/visual technologies.
A History with a Future.
But you know, Eastern Green throughout the years may change beyond all recognition, yet, it's past shall always remain deep within the soil.
For this is where the village first emerged and grew, and it's people, the first farmers, teachers and holy men took their first tentative steps towards building this village we all today hold dear.
From a lowly clearing in the forest of Arden to the arable farmlands producing meat and dairy to a thriving modern village community.
And that almost brings us to the end of our story, but there is just one more thing.
What now for the future of this charming little corner of Warwickshire they call Eastern Green? This sleepy little parish many frequent, yet few wish to leave.
