The Silk of 1000 Spiders
A unique, immersive performance event taking place in October this year at Fort Luton, Chatham’s extraordinary, forgotten Victorian land fort.
Spanning over 150 years of local history, ‘The Silk of 1000 Spiders’ is inspired by the true stories of the invisible labour force who have shaped our landscape and lives.
From the sailors, convicts and workhouse inmates who helped build Fort Luton, to today’s migrant workers, ‘The Silk of 1000 Spiders’ explores and brings to light Medway’s untold stories and forgotten lives.
This is a spectacular show featuring original live choral music and a large-scale community ensemble which promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Funded by Arts Council England with additional support from Medway Council’s Arts Development Team.
