Stolen

Stories from Stolen, first performed at Story Friday Stolen, 11th May 2018, Burdall’s Yard, Bath.

We were delighted to have a wonderful line up of writer-performers for Story Friday Stolen.  We welcomed Mark Rutterford, Martin Phillips, Doc Watson, Elaine Miles, Clare Reddaway, Sarah Curwen and David Wood, with an extra deliciousness recorded for the website by Derek Williams.  We visited the Highlands, London Bridge and the past, we met booklovers and bagpipe players, and we found chessmen and typewriters, magpies and Christmas trees, all in unexpected places, in this feast of stories from some of the best writers in the south-west.
