Story Lab

Raising Millfield - Self Tour

Eastern Angles have toured to venues across East Anglia for decades, this year we bring you a tour with a difference. One where you do the touring. Created in partnership with Peterborough Presents, Raising Millfield is a brand-new walkabout audio play that questions what it means to live and grow up in Millfield. 

The walk begins outside the park on Occupation Road where listeners will hear the first episode of the play. Written by Atiha Sen Gupta  (Eastenders, State Red, Counting Stars), each of the play's ten episodes were inspired by the story of someone from the area. 

Raising Millfield questions what Millfield stands for, for whom it can be called home, and what being a Millfield resident means to those who live there. Connecting different communities from this richly diverse area, this walking play is a new way of experiencing theatre and the outdoors
