Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2009

The Wrekin Cycle

Folk Stories, Travellers’ Tales and one DodgySingalong with Debs Newbold
St Michael’s Church Hall,
8.00pm to 10.00pm

Not so long ago, Storyteller Debs Newbold decided to leave dry land, move onto a narrowboat and travel around the UK collecting traditional tales and urban myths. Six months spent steering the narrowboat Little More from Doncaster to Watford the long way round certainly gave her a few stories. So sit back as Debs heaves open the creaky lock gates of the Rochdale Canal and takes you ‘round the Wrekin... .

Debs Newbold burst out of Birmingham armed with a bucketload of stories and songs, a dirty laugh and a way with an audience. She comes to the Festival fresh from telling Romeo and Juliet at Shakespeare’s Globe and will be MC-ing at the storytelling festival FaTE (Festival at the Edge) later in July.

‘Thoroughly inspirational and life-enhancing storytelling’ (English Folk Dance & Song Society)

Suitable for audiences of age 14+
