Miss Inform

Miss Inform presents intriguing stories about a place.  She is a shape-shifter, a time-traveller, and an outrage.  She is a pleasant and fun surprise in a world full of post-truth and alternative facts.

We are getting ready for a tour of summer festivals and residencies, and developing an expanded programme with a Miss Inform-ation Stall and a whole gang of ‘Miss Inform-ants’ with Alt-Facts.  Appearances and dates for 2017* include:

  • Bradford Science Festival 14th July
  • Blackpool Carnival 23rd July
  • Saltaire Festival 16-17th September
  • Tropicana, Weston super Mare 30th September
  • WOW Bradford 17-19 November

In summer 2016 Miss Inform ran extraordinary tours in South Beach Blackpool – here is a short promotional film so you can see what she got up to! FILM

Based on half-truths, gleaned from the stories, facts and urban myths she gathers from the people in that place, she invites visitors to hear her ‘true facts’ – outlandish misinterpretations that leave the people that hear them hungry to find out what is true and what is fiction.

At Bagshaw Museum she explained to visitors why the Egyptians really built pyramids (they ran out of lego) and told the story of Lady Gaga’s debut performance at the Batley Variety Club in 1968 – giving visitors a badge each with the words ‘I’ve been Miss Inform-ed at Bagshaw Museum’.

Miss Inform  brought her unique sense of place to South Beach Blackpool during summer 2016 following her successful outings at Saltaire Arts Trail in May and Shipley Street Arts Festival in July.

Suitable for all ages.
