Postcards and conversations with the public will be used to collect stories from local people. Starting at WhizzFizzFest (26 June), and touring the county over the summer, the Stall will visit events, markets and high streets – engaging lots of different people. The artists will then respond to all of the stories they hear over the summer and create a pop-up storytelling structure that will visit town centres across Bucks in early autumn.
