“Unscene Suffolk is a welcome and necessary addition to the local theatrical landscape and its future projects should be watched with interest” – InSuffolk review of ‘Fossils’

Unscene Suffolk relies on charitable funds and in this current pandemic has found it extremely challenging to offer these additional activities. If you would like to support us and feel you are able to make a donation please visit our Virgin Money Giving page. Your help is very much appreciated.
- At the start of the pandemic BBC Upload set up a partnership between local Upload shows and the British Library called Lockdown Upload. Norfolk Upload have chosen Unscene Suffolk’s audio production The Mystery of Syleham Manor as one of just 5 recordings they are submitting to The British Library Lockdown Upload Digital Library. Unscene Suffolk’s first audio play will be available to future generations to listen to for many years to come.
- We are very pleased to say that our postponed production of The Mystery of Syleham Manor was adapted and created ‘virtually’ as an audio performance. Check out our Drama Project Blog to find out how we managed it, and you can listen to the play here! We have also just launched The Mystery of Syleham Manor on Scenesaver, which is a great place for us to reach a wider audience and share our work with fellow creatives. Check out our Scenesaver page and listen to the audio play here
- Unscene Suffolk’s first virtual lockdown project was Unheard Christmas Tales, created jointly (for the first time) by our drama and singing groups. We present a compilation of sketches and songs that take the listener behind the scenes at Christmas! Read more here.
- We are delighted to announce that we have received an incredibly generous donation from the Rotary Club of Ipswich towards our singing workshops. Read more here.
