Formed by Bill Mitchell in 2005, WildWorks has a reputation for distinctive site specific work, not just in the Company’s home county of Cornwall, but in diverse locations around the world.

The Archive contains extensive workbooks from key WildWorks personnel that document the fascinating artistic processes that influence their work, along with press and promotional material, photographs, reviews and evaluation reports relating to the full range of Wildworks productions.

The Collection is of particular use to those studying the process behind WildWork's distinctive landscape theatre approach, as well as those with an interest in the communities with which WildWorks have collaborated. Fans of WildWorks who simply wish to 'get behind the scenes' are also welcome.

Materials from this Collection can be viewed by appointment with us in Archives & Special Collections, Level 0, The Exchange.

We are currently cataloguing this Collection. For updates please check our Archive catalogue.

We also hold related Collections such as the Bill Mitchell Archive and the records of Cornwall's Kneehigh Theatre.

Potential users may find it beneficial to undertake preparatory research prior to a visit. Suggested resources are available at Archives & Special Collections: Introductory Reading.

Interested parties may also wish to consult the WildWorks website for more details of previous and current work.
