Walk The Plank

Walk the Plank are outdoor arts experts, who create powerful events with mass appeal. From international stage to village square, their team of experts develop remarkable moments that enrich audiences through shared experience – encouraging a sense of place, a feeling of pride, and well-being. Walk the Plank empower artists and communities through creative development, transforming people and the places in which they live through opportunities to engage with accessible, artistic excellence.

Their rich history of taking artistic performance beyond the confines of traditional theatre space began in the early 90s, and for sixteen years they toured the UK’s only theatre ship, taking productions to ports and harbours from Shetland to Alderney and everywhere in between. From the closing ceremony of the 2002 Commonwealth Games to the opening of Turku 2011 European Capital of Culture in Finland, from intimate performances to ground breaking large scale spectacles, their aim has remained the same – to enrich lives through shared creative experience.
