Our Creations

As well as performing the classics of Charles Dickens and the more modern stories of John Godber, we have created some stories of our own. Mostly inspired by the fascinating history of our hometown of Thetford in Norfolk.

Holmes and Kable

The unlikely love story of two Norfolk based petty criminals, both trialed in Thetford, kept in Norwich and transported to Australia. This local story; Holmes and Kable, captured our hearts so much that we had to share it. 

Thetford Assizes Court

The trial of Henry Sell, Sell in the dock, judge in his throne, prosecution and witness in front

Now a beautiful and unique landmark of Thetford with its tea room and event spaces, The Thetford Guildhall once hosted the court trials of some of the country’s worst of the worst. We at Magic Floor have recreated some of the trials, in our project; Tales of the Assizes, using the manuscript of the trial as our script.

Vikings of East Anglia

After delving into the history of Norfolk and Suffolk in the 17th & 18th centuries with our Holmes and Kable and Thetford Assizes projects, we decided to go back a little further… okay maybe a lot further! The ‘Vikings of East Anglia’ is our latest project (obsession!).
