In a field on the outskirts of Cranborne village, there is a hill, and it has a door…
One of Dorset’s best kept secrets, the Earthouse is a 200-seat theatre – lit by lamplight and fire-light. Here audiences sit on wooden benches, under an earth roof, held up by 21 huge oak tree trunks… they come to listen to stories. The Ancient Technology Centre works with the Crick Crack Club to bring some of the finest contemporary performance storytellers to this fabulous off-beat venue – turning it into a cinema of the imagination.

Band of Burns
Band of Burns is an international collaboration between twelve musicians celebrating the life and work of Scottish national poet Robbie Burns.
They debuted the project in early 2017 in two sell-out shows at Bristol Trinity Arts Centre and London Union Chapel. An all-star ensemble of twelve, top UK folk artists, united by a common appreciation of the philosophy and art of Robert Burns. Featuring Adam Beattie, Mikey Kenney, Dominie Hooper and members of The Langan Band, Honeyfeet and The Odd Beats, Band of Burns will perform “arresting new versions of classic Burns songs” (Celtic Connections) that celebrate his message of equality and social justice....
Fire-lit Sound Journeys - Inside a hill
An all day workshop with Sika, followed by an evening Sound Journey. This has to be one of the most shamanic venues of his 2018 tour. We are VERY excited about it.
Sika will play intuitively, sensing into the energy of the space using his collection of natural instruments, which include: didjeridoo, drums, native flutes, rattles, leaves, stones, shells, bones and maori taonga puoro. Sika’s voice and breath also play a vital role in this powerful, shamanic exploration.
Daytime Workshop 10.30am – 4.30pm
This workshop offers a series of shorter Sound Journeys, each one followed by time to drop into a deeply surrendered and relaxed state of being. There are just 40 places for this extraordinary opportunity.
Evening Sound Journey 7.30pm – 9.30pm
After the all day workshop has ended, this incredible space will be the scene for a whole evening of Sound Journeying with Sika. Amidst this ancient Earth House, by the side of the sacred hearth, we shall dream and vision to sounds, in a timeless journey. Profound magic.
