I have been all over the place recently - quite literally, first in Todmorden in Yorkshire, then London, then Plymouth, then Exeter. All my speaking commitments for the year are now done and the last 2019 performance of WITCH is next week, on Thursday 21st November at 7.30pm at The Red Lion in Chulmleigh, Devon. Grab your tickets for our 76th performance here.
But to rewind a little... Our most northerly performance to date, in the beautiful Fielden Hall in Todmorden, Yorkshire, was part of the very first conference hosted by the Centre for Folklore, Myth and Magic, based in the town. The conference, entitled WITCH: history/legacy, was a great success, with a range of fascinating talks and the best conference food I've ever had.
Why not give the Centre a follow on Twitter here?
Our performance was essentially the finale of the day and it was a lovely space for the show - check out my photos! This was our 74th performance and it was wonderful to perform for such an engaged and enthusiastic audience.
We were delighted to have been invited to bring the show to Yorkshire and would like to thank Holly Elsdon from the Centre for Folklore, Myth and Magic, for all her hard work in putting together such a fantastic event and asking us to be part of it. We are looking forward to working with Holly again at some point in the future.
Here we are during the post-performance Q&A.
The following day, we enjoyed a walk up to the very nearby (it was just behind the house we were staying in!) Stoodley Pike, which burned off a few calories and cleared out the cobwebs! The view from the top of the tower was well worth the climb and was a wonderful way to end a fun and interesting weekend.
