After a fantastic week walking the North Pennines in late June and an autumn teamed up with the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership to give more people the opportunity to get a taste of our Land Journey, we are now bringing our stories back home to the Star and Shadow Cinema. Our first night of Tales of the Forgotten North went really well, with Chris and Pascale enthralling the audience and an added surprise from Paul. His Friday is come and join us for the second telling of Pat and Malcolm’s stories from 2014.
Long Meg Mysteries and The Beltingham Yew
Friday 5th December, 7:30pm
Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle
Paul Frodsham will be back again, this time to accompany Malcolm Green and Pat Renton as we explore the ancient Yew tree at St. Cuthbert Church, Beltingham and the stories behind the 69 stones of Long Meg and Her Daughters on the edge of Cumbria.
A wonderful inclusive evening and mixed audience of us journey-folk, school children, proud parents, beaming teachers, local people and many others… enjoyed an enthusiastic, imaginative and inspiring programme. The teacher explained that they always visited Yeavering Bell as part of their year 5 curriculum but this creative storytelling is now embedded in their own practice.
