Abstract

This article introduces the Heritage Lottery Funded project, Brecon Little Theatre’s A Time Traveller’s Guide to Theatrical Brecon. It outlines the project and provides an overview of the process of sharing archival research through a community-led promenade performance, reflecting on the strengths of this way of working and briefly exploring how this practice might fit within the wider discourses around community, heritage and ecology.
