It's all about you... the people and town of Swindon.

An Uncelebrated Journey is a show spotlighting all that Swindon has to offer in the way of talent and creativity. The idea came from the High Sheriff of Wiltshire Nicky Alberry.

Nicky said : "I am thrilled that we have this opportunity for individual Swindon performers to complement the many groups who will be part of the event.''

The showcase takes place on Saturday, October 6 at the Wyvern Theatre from 7.30pm. There will be a mix of music, drama, dance and a piece based on the life of Alfred Williams, Swindon's famous railway worker poet, who lived from 1877 to 1830. Alfred later served his country in WW1 and became enraptured by India.

Prime Theatre Company will tell the story of The Hammerman Poet, as he was nicknamed because he worked inside the Great Western Railway works.

Mark Powell artistic director at Prime said: "Alfred did not believe in limited his creativity and neither do we.''

Other artists appearing in the line-up of An Unexpected Journey are Rachael Gillespie and Ashley Dixon by permission of Northern Ballet Theatre, Paul Turner and Caroline Dale from Swindon Recital Series, close harmony group, Ten in a Bar, The Janice Thompson Singers, Wessex Male Voice Choir, Swindon Choral Society, Swindon Dance, Judith Hockaday School of Dance, SAPAC of Swindon, Commonweal School Choir and new commissioned work from: Roger May for the Swindon Symphony Orchestra, Helen Ganberg from Swerve Dance Theatre Company, Banxy for Swindon Dance, Divya Kasturi for SAPAC of Swindon and there will be film by Create Studios.
