Fired up for Celtic saint story

The story of one of the Celtic Northumbrian saints is to be told through music, dance, drama and storytelling in a forthcoming performance.

On Saturday at 7 pm in St Maurice’s Church, Eglingham, the Northumbria Community in association with Glendale Crossing Places is presenting Celtic Fire, the story of St Cuthbert.

Celtic Fire has been performed by the Northumbria Community in church and secular venues, cathedrals, festivals, schools and art centres throughout Britain and Ireland, each one telling the story of one or more of the lives of the Celtic saints; men and women who shaped and influenced Northumbria and wider European culture in times past and whose example can inspire us today.

The story of Cuthbert’s life from childhood to his death is told using songs, stories and dances written and performed by members of the Northumbria Community, who will be joined by pupils from Glendale Middle School.

Tickets are available from The Cheviot Centre and Brands Newsagents in Wooler or on the door.
