For the summer 2021 to winter 2022, we have been part of the HAF Summer and winter Fun at Portsmouth City Museum engaging with family audiences.
We have been delivering immersive drama each week to highlight the stories told by the museums across Portsmouth.
We have focused on local history and all our work has been interactive storytelling to engage young learners.
We have received lots of really positive feedback from the public and also from Portsmouth City Museum
Our thanks to Daniel Jessop and Grace, we are going to miss you both!
In July 2021, we took part in The Victoria Park Project.
We researched local characters and brought them to life at the Council run event in the form of street theatre including Victorian Ladies and Park Keepers
The Inclusive Theatre Company were also at hand performing their WW1 songs and dance numbers to the crowd. This was HUGE for them, it was the first time the group had performed to strangers, but they actually loved the day, everyones families attend and we were all able to meet each other which was wonderful especially after the pandemic.
This gave so much confidence to the Inclusive group and the stall holders were very friendly, their was a really great atmosphere, it reminded us all when we were young and were visitors there.
Thank you to Dan Ball Engagement – Learning Officer at The Army Flying Museum for allowing Red Sauce Theatre to write and deliver The Incredible Story of Tilly Shilling.

During 2016-2018 Rachel Goodall became the learning and Community Engagement Officer taking the helm of a WW1 Ship HMS M33, working for NMRN.
Whilst there, I worked alongside Kensington Palace to highlight their new document “Rethinking Heritage” for the elderly community and those living with dementia. It was at this time, I started the initative to train those within the dockyard to be “Dementia Friendly” creating awareness for the illness.
I created many Tours and Workshops whilst on board for Primary and Secondary Schools. I was also lucky enough to enjoy leading large scale media events.
