Lost Found and Told: New Audio Tales for Northumberland Memory Stick

Lost Found and Told is a collection of seven original short stories written by Fiona Ellis, set in the border county of Northumberland in North East England.

With original music and traditional tunes woven throughout, they are tales of losing and finding, of courage - the false and the true kinds, of love and kindness in unexpected places, and of the strength and resilience of Northumberland. They are not true and yet they are all true, as stories with magic always are.

Lost Found and Told promises to enchant and captivate the whole family. Listen at home in the comfort of your living room, close your eyes and you will be transported to the landscape that inspired the tales and the characters you will encounter. 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.

Although each story stands alone, four of the tales are linked together by events and characters (marked with a *) - but you don’t have to listen to them one after another, so we have split them up for you. That means that if an ending worries you – something lost; will it be found? people parted; will they be reunited? – just wait for the next episode of that tale and … Well, we won’t spoil the surprise for you.

We hope you enjoy these tales as much as we did creating them.

We've created a few short trailers from the collection of tales to give you a little taster of what to expect. Lost Found and Told is suitable for children age 8+ but younger (and older!) family members will enjoy listening to the tales as well. 

About the Memory Stick

The memory stick is partly fabricated from recycled paper, and will be dispatched in a 100% recyclable paper padded envelope.  Along with the memory stick we'll provide a printed programme with a list of tracks, and information about the artists involved.

Articles for the Blind

If you are blind or partially sighted we will provide the programme in large print format, and use Royal Mail's Articles for the Blind service for delivery.  Please select this delivery option at checkout if required.

The programme has been produced using Arial font at point size 18.  Please let us know if you would like a larger or smaller font size - there is a notes section at checkout where you can make this request.

Thanks to funding from Great Northumberland 2020, we have a number of free memory sticks available for residents of Northumberland who are blind or partially sighted.  Requests for these can be made by calling November Club on 01670 457808.

Dispatch Times 

We will dispatch memory sticks within 3 - 5 working days of receiving your order and email you when your memory stick is on its way.

Please note that ongoing COVID restrictions and high volumes could impact delivery and this would be out of our control.

The last date for Christmas orders is Friday 17 December 2021, for dispatch on Saturday 18 December 2021.  Orders placed after Friday 17 December won't be processed until Tuesday 4 January 2022 when our team return to the office after Christmas and New Year break.
