Writing’s a miserable business, and don’t let anyone tell you any different. Unfortunately, it’s also a pretty deep-seated need in those who are afflicted.
David’s book How Not to Write a Novel advises would-be writers not even to begin, but if, like him, you can’t help yourself, come along to the sessions and see if there’s any help available….
During the sessions David will read from his novels, answer your questions and get you to do some writing!

The Three Musketeers
Written and performed by Alys Torrance & Judith Faultless
Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
2.00pm to 3.00pm 5.00pm to 6.00pm
Dumas’ beloved story is shoe-horned into an hour of absurd physical comedy and ridiculous plot twists, as Edinburgh Fringe favourites Faultless and Torrance attempt to save King and country with the assistance of poorly attached facial hair.
All the duels, intrigue and adventure you could wish for will be presented live before your very eyes in glorious
technicolour. New meaning is given to ‘One for All, and
All For One’ as the two actors play everybody in the King’s court.
Faultless and Torrance have re-invented the classic tale for the stage and themselves, featuring not just the three musketeers but D’Artagnan, the villainess Milady de Winter and the dastardly Cardinal Richelieu. The indomitable pair make an epic bid for legendary status as
they deliver the musketeers’ tale in a fast-paced escapade of high drama and action.
Suitable for swashbucklers aged 8+
