Lost, Found and Told - New Audio Tales for NorthumberlandNovember Club Morpeth Logo

Free to residents of Blyth thanks to funding from Blyth Town Council

Local performing arts company November Club are delighted to bring you Lost Found and Told, a collection of seven original short stories written by Fiona Ellis, set in the border county of Northumberland.

Lost, Found and Told is inspired by traditional fairy tales and draws on the rich heritage and landscape of Northumberland. Originally conceived as a live performance, Covid-19 restrictions has transformed it into an audio production.

With original music from Katie Doherty woven throughout, Lost Found and Told promises to enchant and captivate the whole family. Listen at home in the comfort of your living room or grab your headphones and head to the heart of Northumberland and walk and listen to the tales right where the action happens. This works for some of the stories better than others.

Blyth Town Council awarded a Community Grant towards the project as the live production would have been performed in Blyth.  With the change of plan to an audio production, this funding now means that residents of Blyth can access the stories for free. Email info@novemberclub.org.uk or send @NovemberClubMorpeth a direct message on Facebook if you are a resident of Blyth, including your full postcode.

You will be sent a unique code to access the tales for free.  

Lost Found and Told is suitable for children age 8+ but younger (and older!) family members will enjoy listening to the tales as well.
