Previous Work A Night of New Fairytales for Northumberland A new collection of local stories inspired by traditional fairytales. We invited families across Northumberland to join us for an exclusive showcase of A Night of New Fairytales for Northumberland. We asked audiences to sit back and experience the magic of our county, its people and challenges brought to life through puppetry and performance, music and wonder. Inspired by traditional fairytales we created three new stories drawing on the rich heritage, landscape and tradition of Northumberland. The stories were How Kielder Forest Came To Be, Kindness to Strangers and Why is the Coast so Craggy? During the development phase of A Night of New Fairytales for Northumberland we took ideas from a range of local individuals and worked with actors, musicians, traditional dancers and puppeteers to develop the fairytales.
