This weekend! Worth a look…


Alarum Productions is a canalside theatre company specialised in retelling real life stories of women on the canals.

This weekend Alarum Productions will be arriving by boat to the Batchworth Canal Centre – Rickmansworth, with two shows – Acts of Abandon and I Dig Canals. Both events are free. 

Alarum Productions

We are passionate about celebrating the history of the UK waterways, seeking out the stories of women’s involvement, and sharing this history with others through artistic engagement.
We create artistic spaces in settings that would not normally support the arts, such as boatyards and other historic waterside locations, bringing communities together to see their history in new and exciting ways, focusing on inclusivity and affordability

Here are some comments from people who saw the show at the start of the tour:

“A brilliant performance packed with fantastic stories and history… I’m inspired to dig more into the old stories of the waterways!”
