Stories from Gold, first performed at Story Friday Gold, 15th January 2016, Burdall’s Yard, Bath
We thought we’d brighten up the cold dark nights of January with a bit of glitter, so we set the theme GOLD. We had a host of fabulous stories from Mark Rutterford, Tricia Wastvedt, June Wentland, John Barter, Clare Reddaway and Philip Douch. There were stories of ice, of love and death, of unusual medical cures and astrological portents, stories set in 17th century Saxony, in the forests of Eastern Europe and some that take place just round the corner.
We were really pleased to welcome the Bristol A-Capella Choir to Burdall’s Yard for Gold. They performed brilliantly for us – many thanks to all of you!
