Lockdown Listening: 'Lost Found and Told' - tales from Northumberland
Local performing arts company - November Club - are delighted to bring you "Lost Found and Told" - a collection of seven original short stories written by Fiona Ellis, set in the border county of Northumberland.
"Lost, Found and Told" is inspired by traditional fairy tales and draws on the rich heritage and landscape of Northumberland. Originally conceived as a live performance, Covid-19 restrictions has transformed it into an audio production.
With original music from Katie Doherty woven throughout, Lost Found and Told promises to enchant and captivate the whole family.
Listen at home in the comfort of your living room or grab your headphones and head to the heart of Northumberland and walk and listen to the tales right where the action happens. This works for some of the stories better than others.
