ROUND THE TABLE is a winter warming project taking place at The Ground Floor. Presented by Jumblies Theatre.

It brings together songs, soup, sewing and storytelling.

We’ve commissioned composers and song-writers to create new rounds for the Ground Floor Choir to rehearse on Wednesday evenings. With text generated by artists and community members, each round represents one stage of a meal: preparing the home, making the soup, greeting the guests, expressing thanks, toasting, telling tales, clearing up, bidding farewell.

Meanwhile, on Tuesdays, we are inviting people to join us in cooking and eating soup, illustrating recipe cards and decorating felt envelopes to hold them. Tuesday meals will also feature guest storytellers, followed by storytelling workshops for youth and adults.

All of this will come together in a Round the Table musical meal and performance, running from March 21st to 24th. For more details and to make an advance reservation, contact info@jumbliestheatre.org.
