Deverills Performing Arts Logo Valley

The stories of Wiltshire are in danger! Martha, Freddie and Gertie, dedicated staff of The Story Exchange, fearlessly journey across the plains of Stonehenge, along the hedgerows of Devizes, clamber to the top of Westbury’s White Horse and heroically swim the River Avon. Their mission is to breathe life into the fading stories of yesterday and ensure the tales of now are still being woven into the fabric of the landscape.
