Tales of the Forgotten North: Stone and Sword
Who cut the enigmatic markings in Lordenshaws rocks? Who is the strange fairy that inhabits the summit of Simonside?

This evening storytellers Malcolm Green and Pat Renton will tell their stories together with local folktales. The archaeologist Paul Frodsham will place the stories within their historical context, while children of Rothbury First School offer bursts of inspiration and decorated map.

Online ticket sales will close midnight the night before the performance. Any remaining tickets will be available from 6.30pm at Jubilee Hall, Rothbury.

A Bit Crack storytellers have embarked on an epic journey through Northumberland and the North Pennines, discovering Tales of the Forgotten North. Over the next two years Malcolm, Pascale, Pat and Chris will be creating stories from archaeological sites in the depths of North-East England with archaeologists Paul Frodsham and Jessica Turner.

Stories dreamt from the land will be created together with school children local to the archaeological sites. They will venture out into the wilds, seek treasure, stir their imaginations, map the ancient worlds, create artworks and their own original stories. Creating fiction from evidence given us by the rocks and stones and lumps and bumps in the ground. Making visible the invisible.

This performance forms part of our land journey a pilgrimage passing through these archaeological sites, where we will stop and share tales and meals together, sleep under the stars and dream the land.

Tales of the Forgotten North is a two-year project in partnership with Northumberland National Park Authority, Northumberland Coast and North Pennines Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in collaboration with Sustrans.
