I Wish I Was A Mountain (2:30pm)
Date: 31st March 2019
Details:  “…a wonderful gift for language, a deep sensibility and a penetrating sense of perspective.”
Sir Ken Robinson.

On the day of the famous annual fair, the town of Faldum receives an unexpected visit. A wanderer offers to grant a wish to anyone who wants one. Before long, the city is transformed. Mansions stand where mud huts once squatted, and beggars ride around in horse drawn carriages. And one man wishes to be turned into a mountain.

Written and performed by former Glastonbury Poetry Slam Champion Toby Thompson, I Wish I was a Mountain uses rhyme, live music, and just a smattering of metaphysical philosophy to boldly reimagine Herman Hesse’s classic fairytale. Do we really need the things that we need? What do mountains feel? How did time begin? Adults are kindly requested to leave all answers to these questions at the door. Children, come as you are.

Details:  HUE AND CRY ANNOUNCE
2019 BITTER SUITE 30TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the classic live album Bitter Suite, Hue and Cry will be taking to the road for some very special stripped back shows in 2019.

Bitter Suite, released in 1989, was Hue and Cry’s third album and the band’s first live album following the critical acclaim and chart success of their debut album Seduced and Abandoned and follow up Remote. Bitter Suite features a beautiful acoustic version of classic Hue and Cry hit Looking For Linda along with their much loved cover of Michael Marra’s seminal Mother Glasgow.

For these special Bitter Suite 30th Anniversary Shows the brothers will be celebrating the songs from Bitter Suite as well as all the Hue and Cry hits and classics in a stripped back style.
