Drama and Documentary Projects
Drama activities in the Epping Forest District
Working alongside Lifeworks in Loughton AVOB has produced some exciting footage and photographs of some of the drama work that we have worked on together. Mainly focussed on local history in 2018 two plays were produced, one at High Beach in Epping Forest and the other in the grounds of Waltham Abbey Church, the latter to celebrate King Harold’s Day. Historical projects in Waltham Abbey include filming Holy Cross Day at Waltham Abbey and King Harold Day.
