Stories from Solstice, first performed at Story Friday Solstice, 17th June 2016, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.

Unknown-4Story Friday in June fell on the 17th – which very close indeed to the Midsummer Solstice, so Solstice was our theme.

We were delighted to welcome writers Adrian Paul, Elaine Miles, Mark Rutterford and Clare Reddaway back to Story Fridays and to hear from newcomers Cherry Potts and Caroline Wookey.  We had stories of blood, guts and pagan rituals, stories of neighbours and neighbourhood watches, stories that made the audience shiver and stories that made them laugh.  If you couldn’t come along on the evening, do have a listen to the recordings below – they are well worth it!
