Didsbury Arts Festival commissioned FLIGHT as part of its 2017 festival for which the theme was ‘Roots’ celebrating Didsbury’s rich history, creativity and cultural diversity. This work was one of 6 new works commissioned for the festival on this theme. The work allowed audiences to connect with real places and characters from the village’s history, who have had a significant impact on the identity and development of the place. 

The play premiered on 24th June 2017 at Didsbury Arts Festival and was staged at The Parsonage Trust in Didsbury.

Project Partners and participants included, Didsbury Parsonage Trust, Fletcher Moss Park Volunteers and the RSPB.
