THERE will be a feast of entertainment coming up at the Malvern Cube later this month - in the shape of the Festival of Equality in Arts and Society through Theatre.

The event, known as FEAST for short, is run by Reaction Theatre Makers, with the aim of delivering innovative and inspiring theatre to Malvern.

The festival, now in its third year, will begin on Friday, November 2, with a performance by Shropshire Inclusive Dance, performing their work Two Fold. There will also be a performance and workshop by the University of the Third Age about World War One.

In the evening, were will be a performance of works in progress by artists and writers across the region and beyond.

Saturday sees the All You Can Eat family day menu. Between 11am and 4.30pm, there will be multiple performances, puppetry and walkabout theatre, and a giant-puppet-making workshop.

There will also be short films being shown every 15 minutes at the Theatre of Small Convenience in Edith Walk, courtesy of the Wrong Door Film Club.

In the evening, there will be clownish theatre by Coulrophobia, and DJ Ed Steelfox will be playing a cocktail of sounds in the bar.

Sunday begins with a free showing of Cardboard Creations Art Trail, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, where schools, artists and individuals will display cardboard sculptures and art works. Monologues and poems on the theme of the First World War will be performed at the Theatre of Small Convenience.

The final event is the Sunday night Have your Cake and Eat it! From 6pm, the centre will come alive with an outdoor campfire, music, and a fireside feast. As the fire dies down, you are invited to join in a Derren Brown-style mind-reading show, followed by a performance by hip-hop band The Aristocrats Uk.

At a recent meeting, Malvern Town Council awarded a £900 grant to Reaction Theatre Makers towards the festival. Malvern Hills District Council is also supporting FEAST by providing banners and flyers.
