Tickets are now available for sale for the next presentation of Wilson’s Tales on March 30 at the Guildhall in Berwick.
It promises to be an interesting night of art, drama and song, reflecting diverse ways local artists have taken on Wilson’s Tales to re-tell them to today’s audience.
First up is Morag Eaton’s re-telling of “The Red Hall; Berwick 1296” in 12 paper-plate relief prints.
The original works will then be on display in the historic Gaols on the top floor of the Guildhall.
The second half will feature Chris Green of Restage’s production of “The Royal Raid”, a tale explaining the story behind a border ballad associated with James V campaign to defeat the Reiver Barons who had lived a lawless life in the debatable border lands. The Tale has been adapted into a short play by retired local Doctor Michael Fenty of Coldingham.
To round the evening off, Paula Whitty, another talented local doctor, will sing the Ballad itself.
The event is being run as a collaboration with the Berwick 900 group, who will give a short report on progress with their plans and how they might involve Wilson’s Tales with this project.
Tickets are now available from the Maltings.
