Towersey Tales – and video


We had such a lot of fun at Towersey, courtesy of Spread the Word, and a wide variety of venues were performed at. Audience for readings between 30 and 100, participants for workshops around 30, and some of them came back and did the workshop again!

Here are some snippets of video of me performing on the Friday in the Ceilidh tent (reading, before you imagine me prancing about the dance floor) though I was tempted – excellent bands.

And here are some photos of us all doing our thing. All copyright me, apart from the one of me, which is copyright Debs Newbold.

Me reading about 17th century folk songs made flesh, with all the incest and murder definitely left in. I think the audience were a bit shocked…

so something for everyone really.

and finally Tom Banks reading from the Great Galloon, in which a balloon/galleon plies the open sky…
