What a brilliant opportunity - I was over there last year and the site really is extraordinary.   I would love to come but will be busy on a show but thanks for thinking of us and I hope that people are beating down your door to get into this

Hello all, 

I'm currently working on the residency below between Monday 21st – Friday 25th September and have some bursaries available for NTW community participants. The whole week is valued at £500. Earlybird is £250 with £300 full price but I have got a bit of funding together to offer limited bursaries out at £180 if you write me a nice letter... I wanted to give people on here the first nod.


101 and Red Earth invite you to join a group of 12 artists to explore and extend your practice in the context of landscape-based work.

You will be working and living together as a group over five days, free to respond to the Greenham Common landscape through both your own practice and through collaboration with the other participants.Taking Greenham Common as our starting point, we will explore how to develop work that is responsive to site, how different locations can offer inspiration through their archaeology, history, geology and ecology. Collaborative work can lead to unimagined combinations through discussion, shared practice and experimentation. This programme invites you to go beyond your comfort zone, discover new skills and collaborate with other artists to create new work, without the pressure of an audience.

This 5-day intensive will appeal to emerging and established artists and professionals working in the arts world: visual artists, performers, musicians, technicians,interested in extending their skills and practice in the context of outdoor installation/performance, and who are intrigued by the challenge of collaborating with artists working in other art-forms.  

Red Earth

With 25 years of site-specific work behind them Red Earth's approach is cross-art form, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, their unique portfolio of work crosses several creative boundaries, with work ranging from site-specific installations to landscape-sweeping performance journeys, linked by an integrity of approach and attention to detail that makes their work unique in the world of outdoor arts. As practising artists, directors and producers they offer a wide and knowledgeable perspective on the hands-on process of creating outdoor site-specific performance.

101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space

Based on the former USAF Greenham Common cruise missile base, this 10,000sq ft warehouse with on-site fabrication workshop, artists village of twelve refurbished caravans and rehearsal facilities is a major new centre for artistic residencies, creation of new work for public spaces and innovation in site specific and outdoor performance.

Perdix near Salisbury are very good and cheaper than baptys but last time I used them they wanted to have one of their guys come out with the guns! Howorth and wrightson in Manchester are a regular prop company that will hire replicas (will mail them)but you have to supply them with the page from the script that mentions the use of guns and a letter head of the company, which is pretty standard for most weapon hire now. There is a shop in Jacobs market in cardiff (first floor at the back owners name is Sean Lacey )and he will hire to film and theatre and is usually very helpful. Or try Rwcmd as they are pretty tooled up!!

Baptys are the main firearms people and certainly have muskets, they are London based and are not cheap, but their kit is fantastic    - you could try Welsh National Opera, they have a huge prop store and are very helpful.

Or you could try this lot

Comment by Rhiannon Ashcroft on October 23, 2014 at 1:25


Hi everyone! 

Mid Powys Youth Theatre are desperately seeking 8 17th century muskets for their upcoming show.  Or anything which is musket-like.  Even if we can get our hands on 1 or 2 it would be a huge help.  

If anyone has any or knows someone who might, please let me know.

Thanks very much!!
