Tales of sheep and farms


A local arts group will be presenting a play on stage at three venues this weekend.

Belford Players will be showcasing Sheep Tales, stories of shepherding in Northumberland at Belford’s Fergusson Hall on Friday, Wooler’s Glendale Hall on Saturday and Etal Village Hall on Sunday.

Material is taken from the Sheep Tales and Spinning Yarns archive of over 700 images and 50 hours of oral history, recording the lives of shepherds and farming communities in North Northumberland. Performances start at 7pm, with doors open at 6.30pm. Donations welcome.
