StormCloud Arts & Theatre was created in 2016 by two University of Winchester graduates, Rory Blincow and Rosie Lewis. Noticing the positive change the arts brings out in people, the skills it hones and creates, and the accessibility issues the sector struggles with, Blincow and Lewis created StormCloud with the idea to make the arts accessible to all.
Since its creation, StormCloud has gone on to be an award winning company, having performed in prestigious venues such as Theatre Royal Winchester and The Railway Inn, and touring works to festivals such as Stroud Shakespeare Festival. We have had original songs recorded with Splendid Fred Records, and frequently hold workshops at the University of Winchester. We make it a priority to work with talented and upcoming local artists and creatives, and to give them the opportunity to work in a professional environment.
