The Government of the Falkland Islands, the British Embassy in Uruguay and the Anglo Institute have joined forces to organize a Theatre Tour to the Islands.

Over the last two years, a number of private and State institutions from the Falkland Islands and the Anglo have found evidence of both interest and mutual opportunity, with a number of projects already in progress.

The British Embassy in Uruguay has played a key role in making this collaboration fruitful and in helping to open up new perspectives and new possibilities for both, the Falkland Islanders and the Anglo educational community.

The Anglo Arts and Culture Department is now embarking on a new educational chapter, an educational theatre production to tour the Falkland Islands in March 2020.

The Islanders are so excited about the tour that they have decided to host a Performing Arts Week while our visit takes place! An adaptation of Conan Doyle's mystery; 'The Speckled Band', will enable Director and Producer Jack Sprigings and his Uruguayan cast, to engage new international audiences for our theatre.

The group will perform at primary schools in Port Stanley and in rural areas, and deliver some workshops for the little ones. In addition, the Anglo Theatre Tour will perform an evening show of short sketches at the Town Hall.

The Anglo Theatre: The Anglo seeks to provide the highest quality Theatre in Education program for young people across all age ranges and abilities, our productions educate young audiences through the powers of entertainment and imagination.

    Gee, them Anglo people better not ever go to Argentina after this. They’ll be locked up and the key thrown away. Chuckle chuckle.
