A Stonesfield-based theatre maker is set to offer a free performance of her award-winning show to Oxfordshire's unpaid carers as part of her tour.

Through her interactive storytelling and clowning show, 'And I’ll Blow Your House Down', Georgie Steele is campaigning for better support for unpaid carers and families with disabilities.

Her one-woman show won the Brighton Fringe Award for Inclusion 2023.

Ms Steele, who is an unpaid carer herself, said: "Our lives changed completely when our two sons were diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative muscle-wasting condition.

"It was like the Big Bad Wolf had blown our house down.

"Suddenly everything was an absurd mess of endless appointments, health and safety nonsense, and offers of help that didn’t help; and I was an unpaid carer."

In honour of Carers Week 2024, she will perform a free show for unpaid carers at Cholsey Great Hall on June 8 at 6.30pm, with the performance starting at 8pm.

Having performed in Brighton earlier this month, she will also take her show to Tunbridge Wells, Barnstaple and Camden Fringe Festivals during the summer.

She added: "The recent controversy regarding the Department of Work & Pension’s ruthless pursuit of unpaid carers for overpayments of Carer’s Allowance, and the highlighting of these issues in recent TV documentaries, have encouraged me to stand up and join the fight for real change for unpaid carers and families with disabilities."
