Project participants explored scriptwriting, acting and production techniques, with access to professional equipment and mentoring provided by the Arts Centre. Old Sarum Odyssey explores journeys, obstacles and adventures, giving the young people involved a voice to articulate their thoughts about living in the area. The film was produced with the assistance of a grant from the Southern Area Board.

Hijack Open Mic at Salisbury Arts Centre

Hijack Open Mic is staged on the last Thursday evening of every month at Salisbury Arts Centre by the Upstarts young programmers group. The Upstarts oversee the development and management of music events to aid the development and sustenance of the city’s youth music scene, including regular monthly events and ‘pop-up’ music events in the Old George Mall shopping centre. The Upstarts also formed the backbone of the Sound and Light Project steering group, which produced a series of youth music competitions leading to the staging of the first ever popular music event for young people in Salisbury Cathedral’s history. This fantastic Hijack film was kindly made by Dylan Winn-Brown of the Arts Centre's Filmmakers Anonymous group.

The Making Of Summer Stage 2014

A behind the scenes look at the creation of the 2014 Summer Stage show, 'Artificial Things' - a multimedia theatre show devised from scratch over an intensive 2 week period in August.

Artificial Things - Summer Stage 2014 Performance

A recording of the Summer Stage 2014 show, Artificial Things produced by Salisbury Arts Centre. The show explored ideas around the construction of self in contemporary times, consisting of a number of independent scenes linked thematically and leading to an unified conclusion asking the question - “Who is this speaking?” This production was entirely devised and rehearsed from scratch over an intensive 2 week period, and every element of the production was put together by the cast and crew in that time - script, scenery, costumes, props, videos, photographs, music and sound effects.
