The day will be led by the Orleans House Gallery team and professional storyteller, street performer, and theatre maker Nick Cassenbaum. Nick’s work encourages tour guides to think creatively about how they engage with spaces, places and people. He has collaborated with the Royal Court, Soho Theatre and in 2017 collaborated with Battersea Arts Centre to create an award winning tour programme.
