Culturapedia hosts intern Ellie Cootes

I’m Ellie – not the Culturapedia caravan, but the newest Intern here on a placement after graduating from Lancaster University this summer. I have only been here in the office since yesterday, but kickstarted my placement last weekend at Mint Fest in Kendal where I met lots of weird and wonderful people and had a great time in the rain and shine promoting somewhereto_.
This week I’ll be switching my focus to Spot On and Laura Mugridge’s new show, Running on Air, which I am very excited about. There will be 16 shows in total taking place in rural spots all over the North West; kicking off in Garstang on the 16th September, then Newton-in-Bowland, Preston, and finishing up in the idyllic setting of Cedar Farm in Mawdesley on the 18th September.
Laura’s show is a beautifully unique experience for an audience of 5 people at a time, combining storytelling with a bit of light audience participation which all takes place in her vintage VW campervan: Joni. Never have I been in contact with so many beloved campervans and caravans with such lovely names, (especially the caravan; a great choice if I do say so myself) and never have I been in such a fantastic creative environment. I’m very much looking forward to meeting Laura next week and seeing the show, as well as continuing my Culturapedia adventure with Spot On.

In the meantime visit for more info on what she does, as well as keeping up to date with her adventures with Joni at
