Street Performance Winchester
 
THE COMPANY

Hotch Potch Performance was first founded in 2010 by Ross, Laura & Eve who were all in the first cohort of the first Street Arts Honours Degree in Europe, if not the world, at the University of Winchester. Since starting there the company has had highlights of performing at the London 2012 Olympics, Hat Fair in Winchester, Glastonbury Festival & La Rue est a Amiens in France. Since then Laura and Ross moved themselves and the company to Cornwall for five amazing years that saw the productions of Café Petite, funded by the Arts Council England and the more recent production of The Tiny Tour.

We have now recently moved ourselves and Hotch Potch, to be with Laura’s family, in Northern Ireland and look forward to the next stages of our adventures.

She has recently become a new mum so has taken more to writing and managerial roles within the company.
